About & Contact

I was born in 1980 in Arnhem, the Netherlands. From 2000 til 2015 I studied and worked in Amsterdam. In 2015 I moved to Aarhus, Denmark.

I see myself as an anthropologist and a photographer.

Cultural anthropology is my starting point when I think of new concepts. As an anthropologist, I study my own and other people’s customs, ideas and behavior. Why do people think as they do? Why do people act as they do? What is normal for one person, can be incomprehensible for another – and the other way around.

With my photography I seek to make the ordinary unfamiliar, and the unfamiliar ordinary.
