Graduated at the Photo Academy in Amsterdam.There I developed my style, my interest to rawness, taboos and secrecy. Berlin based.

I have now spent over 13 years creating photography. From a hunch to writing out the concept, organising and executing it.

In 2022, I felt it was time to compile my 13 years of photography work into a photobook. My third photobook by now and will be published in 2024.

A little recap: My first photobook was published in 2010 and was a photographic report of the festival Zwarte Cross in the Netherlands. Shortly after the Zwarte Cross photobook was published, I started at the Amsterdam photo academy and graduated 2014. After that I self-published my final exam work, my photobook “The Final Cut”. A collection of mostly staged images from the Bondage and Discipline, Domination and Submission and Sadism and Masochisme (BDSM) scene.

Now 13 years later my third photobook is almost readyt: “My Perverted Legacy”. Again, my chosen concepts are BDSM related but also images from the porn and swinger scene where I have taken many photos over the past 10 years.

In 2022 I moved to Berlin where the BDSM scene is big and where I regularly photographed in the Kit Kat Club meanwhile.
