Artist Statement:


I am a photographer from the Netherlands, based in Landsmeer. Photography is my escape from the fast paced life we lead. When I set out to photograph a landscape I usually look for a minimalistic setting that portrayes a scene without the surperfluous information that only disrupts the harmony of a landscape. I tend to use a lot of negative space to emphasize the quiet and to show the bare essence of a landscape. I often use a palette of subtle and pastel colors in combination with the use of long exposure photography to create a minimalistic fine art composition. For me less is more.


I hope to create moments of quiet and wonder with my photography in a very busy and hectic world. Characteristic for my work is the tranquility of it. By searching for this tranquil composition I find my own peace of mind.


The work shown on this website can be bought as a fine art print. If you are interested, please let me know by filling out the contact form.


My portrait photography is mainly in black and white. By shooting in black and white I find ones character is reflected more so. There is no distraction of color and the photograph has more "character". My portraits are minimalistic in form as well, just as my landscapes are.
