“Making the world a little better by telling visual stories. That is my mission as a photographer.
Creating unique moving visual stories that are relevant to society; stimulate awareness
and participation. Stories shown from the perspective of those directly involved
who contribute to new perspectives, ideas and possible solutions aimed at participation
and involvement of the public.”
My style of storytelling is characterised by images taken up close. The documented person is seemingly unaware of my presence – giving the audience the experience of being there in person.
The visuals are built up by multiple layers, revealing the story of the characters not completely visible at first glance.
Throughout my career, my work has developed into a layered narrative style. The central theme of my body of work is the influence of political, economic and environmental factors on humans.
In my view new developments in photojournalism and the ever-changing media offer challenges and new opportunities: to tell a story in a new innovative way focusing on participation and involvement.
