People captivate me more than any other subject. Each has a story to tell and each has enough ambiguity to ignite the imagination. The extraordinary diversity in sizes, shapes, colors, and expressions makes people the ideal raw material for exploring virtually any subject.
Whether capturing a spontaneous moment or crafting a scene with models and props, my photography seeks to produce stories that answer questions that arise in my own mind. Within each person's gaze, posture, and manner, a unique narrative unfolds, bearing the imprints of their personal history, character, and emotions.
I'm especially drawn to capturing moments of joy and excitement in my photo series, which is why I love shooting at festivals, markets, parades, sporting events, jazz concerts, and countless other places where people come together to enjoy life.
When the subject is the human body, I strive to showcase its individual character, and to use it as a way to direct people's attention, infuse humor, or address social issues. I've also drawn on experimental techniques, such as projection-portraits, in which digital images are projected onto models in a darkened studio in order to reinterpret the role of the body in art and decoration.
As an occasional participant in photo contests, I was thrilled to be chosen as a finalist in the 2019 Ed van der Elsken "Lust for Life" competition, organized by the Nederlands Fotomuseum.
I'm always open to collaboration. Guidelines for working together on a TFP (time for print) basis can be found here.
