Hi there and welcome! 

My photography is most of all about form and colour. I often search for repetition and similarities, without making my images abstract. While photographing I let myself be guided by the formal aspects, the appearance of my objects and not by their meaning. In our everyday lives on the other hand, we let ourselves be guided by the semiotic aspects of things, by their meaning. Form is often subservient, whereby we are not really looking anymore. Because meaning is secondary for me while working, a new relationship arises between form and meaning.

Thank you for your interest in my work! Do you have any questions? Feel free to contact me at
