About me

Getting lost in the urban jungle is a true passion of mine, and I am always either taking pictures or thinking about taking them. Together with my partner in life and art, Kristof Vande Velde, I roam the streets looking for images that excite or move me. Drawn to extraordinary lighting or striking contrasts, I specifically have a taste for emotive scenes with a dark twist.

 

I am a member of Observe, an international photography collective focused primarily but not exclusively to the practice of candid street photography.
