When looking at myself and reviewing my own work I overall see that through my photography I always visually try to identify the people that I photograph. And in addition to that I'm very interested in how their life and culture blends into their self being.
My work frequently touches the subject of identity and diversity and aims to go against the standard ideals and showcase stories
through culture and different ethnic backgrounds, my work is a celebration of these differences in culture. As my way of life, I love to conceptually and symbolically tell stories. Usually by showing a different perspective on personal daily life struggles. As a youth I was inspired by the analogue camera of my father, when growing up I kept this interest for visual art and story telling. I started making better pictures during my journeys around the world. After my high school years I started travelling to Israel, India, Ghana and Egypt. During my time in Ghana I fell in love with Africa. Until today Africa with all it's diversity is still one of my biggest inspirations to make art.
