A little bit about me:
Since I was young I have been drawn to stories and storytelling. I read lots of books and loved to disappear into that other world for a while. After books I discovered film. To me this was an even more fascinating way of experiencing stories. So after school I decided to move to Amsterdam to follow Film Studies at the University of Amsterdam.
I learnt about the origins of film, and photography being the starting point of this medium. I followed a course in photography, and was soon convinced that this was the way I wanted to tell stories, to try and create little stories just in one scene. I invite, you, the viewer, to ________________________         ‘move around’ in the photo, to wander and to wonder.
