What I did:
Where you can follow me:
Taking pictures: there's actually little more to it than observing the world around you and pushing a button.
After 15 years of 'practice' my pictures have become the mix that I prefer most: straightforward poetic reality. Some of the work presented here dates back from 15-20 years ago. Strong images last. Good pictures even get better when the age.
I've been working as a professional photographer for more than 15 years now. For magazines & companies but mostly for the joy of it.
Besides photography I initiated and managed the following projects I thought were important:
Art Flow for Pakistan
October 2010: Art Flow for Pakistan, a benefitial Art Auction held at the NAi in Rotterdam. Together with more than 30 volunteers and almost a 100 artworks we raised more than 17.000 euros. The auction was set up in just over 5 weeks. Only 200 euro's was spent on overhead costs.
