“I AM NOT INTERESTED IN TELLING SPECIFIC STORIES”

PHOTOGRAPHY AND MIXED EMOTIONS

I do nude photography because of the body language, the honesty, the vulnerability and the power. Telling specific stories with my photography is not something I am interested in, rather creating images that conjure up a mix of feelings. It should be something more ambiguous than a story.

DANCERS AND THEIR ATHLETIC BODIES

Visually, my work currently portrays mostly athletic bodies. That is mainly because of my environment, as I am a professional dancer myself. Although I am interested in broadening the body types and will do so in the near future. Most of the models seen in my work are people I know, but of course it’s always important to be respectful and delicate when dealing with nudity. I think it’s about the energy that you create during the shoot and be very clear in what your intentions for the images are.

OPEN-MINDED AND CREATIVE

Usually I do a lot of location scouting before I create an image, I have a clear idea of what I’d like to try, but we also play around in the moment. Most of the time models also propose a lot of ideas. Creating a dialogue with the models in general is very important to me. The people I enjoy working most with are creative and open-minded.

CAMERAS ARE LIKE BRUSHES

For my photography, the right kind of technical equipment is crucial . Choosing what camera to use for the image has a very big impact on the final result. Cameras are like brushes, and I like painting with different types of them.

MERGING TWO MEDIUMS

Depending on the project I like working in teams or on my own. For my next project I’m working together with a painter, I think it’s very exciting to explore the possibilities to merge the two mediums.
