logo biography

I was born on the Indonesian island of Bali in 1948. After my training in Holland as a photographer on the academy of arts, I worked in practically every field of my profession, such as publicity, advertising - on locations or in the studio - either for business purposes or for private persons. Beside that, I also used my camera to express my vision of the world around me.

Sometimes I am simply fascinated by beautiful colors, forms and lines. Sometimes also by desolate images that worry me. Often I am struck by pauperized or neglected nature. At other times I am moved by the way we decorate our homes, gardens and our cities. It tells us a silent story of ourselves. Used in this way photograhpy is like a mirror.

In 1997 I started to decrease my commercial work and sorted my files for exhibitions and festivals. I think it is time to show you my work.
