Behind the lens

I think the best way to describe myself is as a photographer who wants to create awareness of what is going on in the world with her work. Hoping to start a conversation that might lead to a change. A photographer who highlights the relationship humans have between each other, as well as their relationship with the planet & all its other residents

I found out how strong an photograph is and how much influence it can have on a person during my photography studies in Rotterdam. I learned that photographs are able to tell stories that need to be told. I was lucky enough to do my internship in Tanzania in 2013 where I was allowed to work as a photographer for an organisation that tried to improve people's quality of life. It was then that I understood and felt what I wanted to achieve with my photography.
