You never get a dream without the ability to make it come true.


We are living in a world of visual and virtual abundance. Paper books and magazines are replaced, viewed and read digitally. The more information I get digital, the more I appreciate the slow turning of pages and spending hours of dreaming in paper books. 

My passion for books, photography and writing has taking a long time to take shape. The deadlines, the traveling, the creation of more and more collections held me in its grip for quite some time.

My first book came into being, together with Anneliek Holland, and my Design Academy Master students as a result of a great project we did in India with crafts people in Kutch.

Since my first book got published I haven’t stopped making photo essays and books.

Most of my books are limited editions and one-of-a-kinds.

My ‘writing with pen and light’ photo essays are also published in local and global Magazines like Happinez and Hand/EyePantoneView and VIEW.
