I have been working for 15 years as . I also worked as a photojournalist for the Dutch national newspaper Trouw and national weekly magazine HP/DeTijd.
Before that, I worked a few years as an ad hoc photo editor for the newspaper de Volkskrant.
I focus on "slow-photography" projects and travel photography in a subjective documentary mode, by exploring fragments of urban architecture, scenes and still lifes, resulting in small editions of self published photobooks.

Urban Still lifes
The Blue Tape Dispenser is an expanding archive of photographs.
It is the result of observations of simple and true things in the commonplace world;
urban still lifes
often made of temporarily solutions, small imperfections and impromptus.
These pictures try to take note of human nature in likely and unlikely places;
light matters revealing an often overlooked sign language in the world around us.
