Contemporary Dutch photographer. 
  
Artist statement: 
  
Nowadays we are overrun by photographs and in daily life they seem to be all around us. These images are massively discharged on us by the different media.
 
Our eyes are hardly getting any rest because pictures control the existence. There are new ones coming out all the time succeeding each other with high speed. This is made possible by our modern technique.
 
A reality that we recognise is shown to us and themes like identity and culture are important. Contempory photography is a reflection of this. Through the eyes of the photographer the world is looking at itself. One wants to catch that special moment in a split second so we work with highly advanced equipment. All this seems to match our modern lifestyle because we do like to act fast and to have our situation under control.
 
I work with a pinhole camera.
 
Something which will be often seen as a prehistoric way of working. But by using this black box with only this tiny little hole in it, I try to give my photographs another gateway to reality. That small hole has a complete different way of looking at the world then that our eyes do or the lens of our camera does.
 
Since some time now I do try to make pictures where the feeling of loneliness and emptiness dominates. A world in which expiring time is only visible. You see the present and at the same time also the past.
 
The light will slowly affect the negative and so I never hurry (exposure times are rather long). I gratefully use the coincidence instead of reducing it. Not reality itself but the experience of reality is important as well as the emotion and the experience of human perception.
 
Nature is my area of work. The "disconsolate" landscape provokes my imagination. It causes a different notion of time and the association dominates.
 
In this way I try to dissociate my photographs from time and place in order to emphasize some sort of poetic feeling. For the public there is an invation to discover their own world of association. (August 2008)

Supplemental information

 
Artist Statement for WHICH BIRD ARE YOU?
 
The series Which Bird Are You has first of all developed because of a fascination for the world of birds.
 
Their visibility is always hasty and people are often unaware of their presence.
 
All what is left are their deserted traces.
 
Silent witnesses of a passed time. Like a memory of small events and living creatures.
 
Recorded just to give them a special meaning.
