I studied literature and had a professional career in journalistic and commercial writing, before I became a documentary photographer.
I studied photography with Forum Beeldtaal and the Fotoacademy.
My autonomous projects were published in British, Dutch and Belgian newspapers (The Guardian, Trouw, De Volkskrant, De Limburger, De Standaard, De Morgen) and magazines like Dodho, Focus and Pf. Most of my projects deal with current social themes. Between 2016 and 2020 I made an interactive multimedia documentary about life in a migrant suburb. My latest projects are related to the pandemic, the floods in the Walloon region and the impact of Brexit on young adults in the United Kingdom.
