Pleased to meet you
I’m a photographer based in Amsterdam, Netherlands. I take candid, unposed photographs of interactions between strangers and their everyday surroundings.
I like how an apparently everyday moment can become a short story when photographed.
How a non–scripted moment looks that odd, meaningful, beautiful or funny that it looks scripted. But it isn't. I am thrilled when I succeed in doing this.
