I grew up in the 80s listening to electro, new wave and classic rock from the 60s and 70s. I was completely blown away by the cover of Pink Floyd's 'Wish You Were Here' from Storm Thorgerson.

I grew up in the 80s listening to electro, new wave and classic rock from the 60s and 70s. I was completely blown away by the cover of Pink Floyd's 'Wish You Were Here' from Storm Thorgerson. I've always been intrigued by all things visual. I liked drawing my own comic books, looking at the clouds and colors in the sky, watching movies, cartoons and documentaries , playing computergames, staring at those first (green) holograms from the 80s (although I couldn't afford one), and of course, I always loved pictures of faraway places.

In the mid 90s, after graduating, Microsoft Windows was starting to take over corporate computers and a commercial Internet was emerging, and I jumped on the bandwagon. During the same period, somebody put a Nikon FE in my hands... this 20-year old camera (at that time) from the 70s was a classic, but what did I know? I had never used or touched a camera before. The first time I tried shooting photos with it, someone had to point out that there wasn't any film inside.

In 2000 I started backpacking as much as I could and as far away as possible and meanwhile shooting slides with my first (simple and second hand) camera and in 2006, I bought a digital and I also started taking photos after work, or during the weekend.

MY PHOTOGRAPHY

I have always considered my work eclectic because I have been experimenting with all kinds of techniques and using different approaches. This has resulted in a portfolio containing a large variety in styles, processing, moods and subjects.

FUTURE

My aim is to work more in series now, rather than compiling a random collection of images. This automatically means I'm going to have to think more about the content of the photos, instead of "only" trying to capture or make something beautiful. Read Less
