Beauty is everywhere, just waiting to be seen.......
Since '90 I've combined my work as a teacher/social worker with various trips around the world and built a large collection of photographs: portraits, landscapes, social & street photography.
Africa is my favourite continent. The spontaneity and outgoing attitude of the Africans make them easy accessible. It's this directness and frankness that fascinates me and I try to reflect this warm contact in my photographs.
Beside my fascination for people I feel attracted to details, structures and colours. I like to release objects from their environment or to accentuate them in order to emphasise their beauty or create a new reality.
