I am a self-taught family photographer with a documentary approach. I take pictures in private homes or outdoors because I believe that natural interaction creates the best images of the family.
I am from Belgium and moved to Denmark in 2007. Here I now have my family and we live in a small village on Sorø, with quiet and open spaces.
I am a trained chemist and have been able to work in photography.
I am drawn to moments of presence and contemplation, and these are, among other things, those I capture with my camera in your family. Therefore, it is also very important to me that everyone feels comfortable with me and my camera. This can take time and that is why I always shoot for a long period of time.
