I love gin, skin, the sea and i'm afraid of time.
We can tell stories with pictures. Every person has their own story to tell, and I want to make these stories visible. People with their small and big scars, with their stories that life writes and that make us who we are.
I seek the reduction to the essential, the focus on what is really important and speaks to the viewer. I am not concerned with creating a flawless ideal image. I capture the moment, while remaining as authentic as possible.
With pictures we can tell stories. And if someone rediscovers himself/herself/themselves in my portraits and the picture speaks to the viewer, then that is a good picture.
