Jurgen started photography in 2011 with the birth of his oldest son Boudewijn. He bought a Fuji X100 and started to document his life and his sons. Jurgen lives in the eastern part of The Netherlands in a small town near Deventer called Heeten. His is an entrepreneur with a small game company called GameLabs (Spellenlabs).
In an autodidact way he tries to make photography hisself. Jurgen is inspired by music, books, movies and of course other photographers. With a compact system camera, he approaches subjects in a personal way, with respect for subjects and people. His photographic signature is best described with contrasting black & white photos with surprising compositions.
Jurgen wants to transfer feelings into a picture! His photos have to tell a story, in any way. They have to drawn the viewers attention, create a stop moment and rase questions. Take the viewer into my mind and feel what I feel.
