Above is one of the photographs from my series ‘Nachtansichten’ which I submitted for this year’s Canon Grand Prix (category ‘stad en straat’) organized by focus magazine. As my series made it through the first selection round, I was invited to a portfolio review day. there I had the chance to present my work personally to the jury. A few days later I received the news that I was one of the four semi-finalists.
After an inspiring meetup with the other three candidates and jury member Ahmet Polat, we had one week time to produce a new series as a follow-up on the submitted work. I chose to continue with night photography so this meant several late night wanderings through my city during the last few days… I am finalizing my series at the moment, you can see a first result below.
My photo series sense of locality has been selected for festival binnar, hosted at Vila Nova de Famalicão, Portugal. It is part of the show [ MIT ] ME THERE at Museu Da Industria Textil from 12 till 20 november 2016.

In collaboration with media artist Eleanor Grootoonk I made a series of photo illustrations for an assignment by the council of Harderwijk. The illustrations were used in a publication and for a series of postcards. We developed the style of the illustrations and created digital collages with pictures we took in Harderwijk. Illustrator Sahal Merchant created the cover for the booklet, which is made up of image elements from our illustrations.
I would like to invite you to my solo exhibition in Nordhorn, Germany.
After winning the artist stipend of the Emsländische Landschaft, I spent in total four month in two residencies in Nordhorn and Papenburg. In the exhibition I will present the works I made during that residency period.

An article about my exhibition, published in the regional newspaper ‘Grafschafter Nachrichten’
During the last months I worked an online photo portfolio in addition to my general website. One reason was that since last year I am doing freelance photography assignments. Next to that, I created more personal photographic works over the last years which I wanted to give a space online next to my artistic portfolio.
