How do you express your creativity?

Mainly in photography, what started as a hobby and eventually became something I could earn money with. What gives me a lot of energy currently is when a project is not only visually challenging, but narratively too. Once I can communicate that story, it is a creative success.

Where do you get your inspiration from?

I’ve been going a lot to museums lately, and I started reading a lot. I’m now reading a book on essentialism: “Essentialism: The Disciplined Pursuit of Less”. It’s interesting to me how one can achieve the highest output in the most efficient way. I can also find inspiration in music, movies, a lot of things to be honest. The things I make are an extension of who I am. 

We can often find you on one of the islands

They are insane. Recently I was talking with a friend about how perfect it would be to have a house on Vlieland and a house in a city. If I had to choose I’d always choose to live in nature, that’s where I thrive. I really like Vlieland, however I’m not sure if it would be the same if I lived there permanently. It’s a perfect place to recharge and let everything go.
