Amsterdam based photographer whose work revolves around subcultures and exploring different worlds. My work visualizes scenes where identity and a sense of community are omnipresent. As a storyteller I am inspired by cinema: I create theatrical images where light, or more often the absence of light, is most important. 

Photography graduate of the Royal Academy Of Arts in The Hague (2016)
Currently living and working in Amsterdam, The Netherlands

Always looking for new collaborations
