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 Cultuurfonds and in 2021 my film O, collecting eggs despite the times won the IDFA award for best directing in the Envision competition.
