My name is Merel Schoneveld, I live in The Hague, the Netherlands and a stay at home of 4 year old. I discovered street photography in the fall of 2016, in the first place because I needed to find something to do for myself other than being a mom, to get out of the house and feel a sense of freedom. I was instantly in love with this form of photography. Stories, emotions, they are all there on the street, I love not having to fabricate it, it’s so very pure. All you need to do is observe. It has made me appreciate the beauty in everyday life and in my fellow human beings.
