Life is inspired by art.
Art is inspired by life as we all know but I focus on that aspect that it is also the other way around, you just have to know where to look for.
So by having seen and studied a lot of art and I try to find places or things, that aesthetically resemble a certain style of painting that will help me to connect reality back to art. And there is now better tool for this than a photographic camera, because a photograph has the inherent quality that it shows a frozen moment in life.
A little about me
I´m a Dutch artist Living in Lima. I got introduced to photography at a very young age due to my father who had a photographic darkroom to develop and print his photos on the attic of our house.
I´m making photographic works of art in 2007 when I started my education at the academy of visual arts AKV St.Joost. I always liked painting and drawing, and at the academy also experimented with sculpting but always liked that photography can move more freely from one thing to another. Its very on point in what it wants to communicate sins it show a direct and literal copy of the artists perspective.
