Education
Gerrit Rietveld Academy Photography, Amsterdam, 1996-2000

Work
2020-2021 Photography project "Contact" in which I photograph my familiar environment around my studio in Rotterdam Kralingen, where I made contact with my familiar surroundings. Hence the working title. I make portraits of people on the street and of people I already know well. I also photograph somewhat hidden places and urban nature. In this project I worked together with photographer Rafaël Philippen, who lives on the other side of the Maas in IJsselmonde. The project originated during the first Corona lockdown. At the end of the summer 2021we made a book and an exhibition of our work.

2019-2020 Het Friese landschap. Landscape photography assignment commissioned by CBK Rotterdam and Museum Belvédère, Heerenveen.
Greiden, (Frisian for meadows and grasslands) is the title of my new "road movie" about the Frisian landscape. It is a film made of photos, in which tranquil black and white landscapes around Leeuwarden gradually merge into one another. The images are accompanied by sounds that I have recorded in the landscape on the spot. The film was made as part of the retrospective exhibition "Earth and World" by painter Olphaert den Otter in Museum Belvédère in Heerenveen and can be seen there from 3 October '20 to 3 June '21.

2017-2018 Portrait assignment commissioned by Rudolf Steiner College in Rotterdam. Portraits of students, teachers and other staff members. In addition, I was responsible for the visualization of cultural life and art in the (new) school building.
I made a painting with a number of students measuring 3.60 by 4.80 meters, which is now permanently on display in the auditorium. In addition, I exhibited work in the school that students made during art and craft classes.
