LOVE FOR CONCEPTUAL PHOTOGRAPHY
I'm a conceptual photographer based in Deventer, The Netherlands. As a conceptual photographer, my photography project always starts with amazement and wondering. Usually, this is about a socially relevant topic, such as the use of social media or the relationship between human and nature. I immerse myself in the subject and this story becomes the source of a new photography project. The new impulses of knowledge, the different views regarding the subject, the amazement about the daily and self-evident things and the challenge to capture the story in a single powerful image, give me inspiration. By presenting the discovered new insights in a surrealistically realistic way, I hope to evoke amazement by you as well.
With my images I try to stimulate the viewer to think about his own relationship or opinion with respect to the subject: what is my relationship with nature? How do I present myself on social media?
Can I help you capture a story in an image? Please let me know, and together we will go on a journey to the core of your story and the all-telling image. I’m looking forward to meeting you and getting amazed by your story!
My motto is "There is no such thing as reality, there is only perception".
