I’m an independent film maker/ media artist/ photographer who studied at the Piet Zwart Institute in Rotterdam between 2001 en 2003. My work consists of photography, documentaries and video-installations, and is often inspired by, or based upon, archive material.

For my documentary films I prefers to work with correspondences, diaries or autobiographies in which ‘small history’ has been recorded. These provide me with the opportunity to link the abstraction of historical events to memories; a link which completes and nuances history and provides new perspectives.

In 2022 I received the Documentary Stipend of the Prins Bernhard Cultuurfonds and in 2021 my film O, collecting eggs despite the times won the IDFA award for best directing in the Envision competition.
