About me
I am a conceptual photographer and art director. I finished a MA Photography at UAL London, and received a BA in Art-direction at Willem de Kooning in Holland.

  • Smuggle your drugs
    Smuggle your drugsIn collaboration with Vice, I created an 6-spread photo series for Vice Magazine. It gives a good example of my conceptual thinking and my photography.

  • Crocs X Marloes Haarmans
    Crocs X Marloes HaarmansFor the campaign ''Crocs out the box'' I was commissioned to do an artist collaboration with them, to put the Crocs shoe in a artistic perspective. In my work, I like to juxtapose found objects and products. Through this combination and change of context I alter their meaning and imbue them with a new sense of possibility. For this reason, there is no better shoe brand to work with than Crocs. The odd silhouette, solid colours, holes and lightweight foam possess so much potential. With this pr

  • This is not a love song.
    This is not a love song.The human body gets constantly translated into everyday objects that make use of symbols of sexual identification. With this project I challenged the function of these objects’ by creating surreal and unrecognizable narratives that subvert our gender-roles. Each image is for the viewer to rethink the symbols around their own sexual and intimate behaviour.

  • Anya's Fruit & Veg Shop
    Anya's Fruit & Veg ShopAnya's Fruit & Veg Shop was a concept store designed as part of the Anya Village, located on Pont Street, London. The store was inspired by the traditional greengrocers that dot our street corners up and down the country; piles of fruit and veg stacked outside in crates, stickers on the fruit, a colourful strip curtain hanging over the door, bananas hanging from hooks on the wall and even a traditional till and scales. My role in this project involved designing the fruit sticker themed graphics
