I am a visual artist living and working in Amsterdam. My work varies from street photography, studio portraits, videos, drawing, painting and collages.
With my images, I hand over the experience of constantly having to solve puzzles to get a grip, showing human action and behavior to be confusing. I use photographic means as color, point of view and composition in a way that unimportant details become important and positioning becomes difficult. Every image raises questions, there is little guidance or certainty. They leave you with the feeling of being an observer and outsider.
I am intrigued by the opinion that making an effort to fathom an image can result in gaining awareness, thinking differently and becoming more open-minded. By employing this I aim to give an understanding about neurodiversity, and there not being one ‘right’ way of thinking, and behaving.
