Currently living and working as an artist in residence in Marrakech, Morocco.

This film is about me and my work as a visual artist & photographer. It is officially made for Donnerwetter Day 2017.
With special thanks to: Arnoud Lievers, Yadi Dragtsma, Melchior Burgzorg
The music is from Donnerwetter.

“I am always looking for a certain bizarreness in situations and in images.
I like to play with the world around me.
In my work I combine the disciplines portrait, still life and performance.”
