Pushing

Experimentation is a large part of the work that I make. Besides striving to create something that is aesthetically interesting and able to raise questions, I challenge myself to learn new ways of achieving a photographic product. What I did for the following selection of pictures was Push the film. What this means is that I took a standard roll of Fomapan 100 (ISO 100) and loaded in my camera. However I dialled my camera’s

Catharsis

Recently I have experienced emotions I haven’t felt in a long time, and ones I can’t deal with in the way I would like to. Writing and photography have always been an outlet. Recently I saw an exhibition called ‘The Universal Photographer’ which had elements of text and images combined. This inspired be to take old prints of analog photos, made on cheap drawing paper, and typing little poems in English and Dutch off the

One Stop Shop

I’ve been exploring analog photography for a little over a year now. In this time I have been honing my skills as not only a photographer but also developer and artist in general. In this I have become fascinated with the idea of Shooting, developing and publishing in the same day and becoming a ‘ One Stop Shop’ so I am able to also help others with their photo’s. Film: Agfa APX 100     

A Quiet Place I

I experience ghost sounds in my deafest ear, things like clicks, beeps, hissing sounds etc. Because of these sounds I cannot experience complete silence anymore. If I am in a completely silent room, within minutes it will become difficult because I cannot focus on anything else but those sounds.  For this reason I started going for walks in nature areas. These places always gave me peace of mind, but the wind through the trees became

Northern Landscape

Digital photo’s from my family vacation to the North of England. 

Exploring the North in Black&White

The old villages among the hills are a great source of inspiration and a beautiful escape from town/city life. We visited Delph with my grandmother. Shooting in the cemetery we were approached by an old man. We thought we were in trouble, but it turned out he was the gentleman taking care of the park and trying to get things to grow again. He came to apologise for the fact there were so many leaves

Exploring the North in Colour

Exploring the area around my Grandparents house. I have no solid memories of this place so every time I come here it’s like a new place to explore. The only thing I do remember well is the Tandle Hill Monument on top of the hill. So me and my brother decided we were going to make it up to the monument and look out over the neighbouring towns and the incredibly steep hills. Shot on

Expired Experiment

I found this roll of film in my boss’ basement. I decided to shoot it one day to see if it would be any good. Fuji Superia 100 120mm medium format film, Expired in July 1992. So I compensated 1 stop ISO (50)

This isn’t a bus, this is a metaphor.

  When someone is sick, in a way that isn’t going to be solved quickly, people always rush to comfort and help this person. We bring them their favourite things, we take them to appointments, we do everything within our power to ease their suffering. But there comes a time for most people that they have put in enough effort. That moment one realises that this person may never get better. Psychologically it can be

The Invading Landscape

8 weeks ago I started on a documentary series about local farms dying out. This ended up turning into a landscape documentary exploring the invading modern ways of greenhouse farming and it’s slow creep towards the remaining local farms. (Digital photographs.)
