You use a glass mirror to see your face; you use works of art to see your soul.
George Bernard Shaw
Photography is freezing one fleeting, special moment so it lasts forever. That one moment, being fixed in a frame, gives you the opportunity to study it, to plunge into the given situation, to feel the atmosphere created by the pictured people and the photographer.
I chose to be a photographer because I want to explore the fleeting moments that define us as human beings.
We interact, we have relationships, we bond because we are family, friends or lovers. We look into mirrors and see that we change, always. We search for a purpose; sometimes we’re stuck, sometimes we’re still looking, sometimes we think we found it. And sometimes we find people or stories and absorb them, pretend for a while to be someone different.
As a photographer, I took on the role of an observer and looked for the stories other people and certain sceneries could tell me.
Studied photography at the Academy of Fine Arts and Design in Maastricht (NL) from September 2009 to July 2013.
Obtained a Master’s degree at the Hochschule Düsseldorf in Culture and Media Studies in 2017.
