I am a passionate photographer for many years,based in the Netherlands,with a pronounced preference for black and white. Having originally been trained in black and white film photography,I try to emulate the same aesthetic even though now mostly working digitally.

My work is characterized by minimalism, composition and a strong sense of dramatic images. I look for the different in the ordinary by using the power of the still image to tell a story or capture a mood or moment in time.

The strength of black and white photography to me is that it allows the “story” of the image to shine through without the visual distraction of other colors. 

Subjects vary from landscape to architecture, from nature to portraits.
