photograph in january 2016/dead swan inspired by classic dutch 17th century still lifes
Biography: I born was in Rotterdam, the Netherlands. My education started at the Willem de Kooning Academy in Rotterdam, dept.painting and graphic art. During my studies I also practiced photography, and I decided to continue my studies at the Royal Academy of Artsin The Hague, dept. photography. In my work I pursue to see a photo as an autonomous image. In photography this still is a challenge, as an image mostly has to meet the needs of a journalistic or advertising notion. In my latest series, I seek to portray men in their urban landscape and see how human beings live in an environment they created.
