- from deep within an outdoor photographer -

I am a freelance photographer who works for various clients as well as on my own projects.

From a passion for flora, fauna and science I am a photographer of greenery, from the smallest detail of a plant, a garden, to the vastness of landscapes.

The theme of my projects can be traced back to my curiosity to the interaction between nature and humans. See for example the projects CairoDisnature and -1,565 N.A.P.

Artist Statement

In my work I question the relation between nature and culture and use photography as a medium to do my research.

The themes in my work are traced back to my own fascination for nature, my belief that nature itself cannot be controlled and to the internal conflict I experience when I try to position myself with respect to nature. The interaction of construction and destruction between nature and culture is what truly intrigues me and the questions that I relate from this are the motivations for my work.
Besides literature and internet research I talk with people from the field, to collect information in order to come to a narrowing in my research. In these same studies I question the imaging of nature and challenge the audience to think about it.
