You never know where the inspiration will come from. For years I was biking under a bridge and looking into a “dirty hole” as I called it, that just kept on drawing my attention every single time. It was the light that made that creepy place so special for my photographic eye. It would change from a hard tiny strip falling from the top of the bridge in the midday to a perfect soft light spot in the early morning and late afternoon. 

From the first day on I knew I gonna shoot there. I kept on biking along the place back and forth and ideas bounced in my head like lottery balls but no number was coming out… Until, this summer, Patta blessed us with the seersucker paks, that I’m totally in love with as much as with this toxic duo ♥ →

Exactly a month ago I had a pleasure to photograph a wedding of Paula and Clemence. A sweet German couple from The Hague who decided to marry in De Mesdag Collectie, making it my ever first wedding photographed in a museum and I can’t be any happier with this experience! Lovely location, stunning art collection, charming garden, beautiful couple and incredibly stylish guests - all the perfect elements for an unforgettable wedding. 

The light and colours looked great but something was telling me it’s black and white that will embrace the atmosphere and emotion of that day the best, and I think I wasn’t mistaken. What are your thoughts on monochrome only wedding photography?

Almost two months ago I was working as an Assistant Camera on the set of a Dutch feature film. Ten long heavy work days with hardly one day of rest in between are still kinda haunting my mind and body, but for the rest let’s say it was fun. 

I often take my camera with me even if, technically, I don’t have to make any pictures. This time often turned into.. one day, yeah… tiredness kills everything. Luckily I took it with me on exactly the right day, when we were shooting in a former prison complex Bijlmerbajes, which is currently anything but prison.. a hotel, a restaurant, climbing spot.. you name it.

Several floors and some other areas, as far as I know, remain untouched though. You can get a guided tour through these prison facilities, that in some cases look better than that hotel room you booked on your vacation to Thailand.. maar ja welcome to The Netherlands :)

Yet, even a comfy and relaxed ex-prison still has its creepiness, depri-wibes and that dark and empty feeling which I tried to capture in my photographs. Pictures are a mix of set and interior photography.
