#Slide compilation


I’m very proud to present a small compilation video of some of the #Slides we produced during our 3 evenings on the slideshow for Bending The Frame

For these evenings we asked photographers to think about their work in relation to the format of the slideshow and matched them up with musicians who made a soundscape for this work and who mostly played live during the evenings. The results were phenomenal. We presented a new way of experiencing photography.

We are now hoping to take some of these slides on the road. Stay tuned!

In this compilation you see footage of the following slides:

* Sohrab Hura & Hannes d’Hoines and Sjoerd Bruil
* Pieter Ten Hoopen & Tip Toe Topic aka Elko Blijweert, Saar van de Leest and Joris
* Anton Coene & Rudy Trouvé with special guests

Al te luide eenzaamheid

“For we are like olives: only when we are crushed do we yield what is best in us.” Bohumil Hrabal

Here’s a little teaser I made for the play ‘Al te luide eenzaamheid’ by Theater Zuidpool.

In the past months I’ve been following the whole process of how this performance is being developed. From the first times reading the beautiful text by¬†Bohumil Hrabal, to testing out scenography and costumes. It’s wonderful to see a play literally appearing and shaping itself in front of your eyes.

Muhammed Muheisen

Last week I was surprised and very honored to find that fellow photographer and dear friend Muhammed Muheisen mentioned me in his online article on the American Photo website, where he is taking over their instagram account for a week.

Ever since I met Muhammed back in 2006 in Jerusalem, I’ve been inspired by his work and it’s so wonderful¬†to know he likes my work as well. Thank you so much for the kind words Muhammed!

Do check out the amazing work of Muhammed. You’ll notice immediately why he has won a few World Press Photo Awards, a Pulitzer Prize and countless other awards and continues to inspire me in my work.

Instagram anniversary

Today I’ve updated my Instagram feed with images I took on a trip to Afghanistan, photographing female Afghan parliament member Fawzia Koofi as well as researching stories on maternal health and woman, a subject that has been very close to my heart since I first started working in Pakistan in 2009.


I noticed that I started posting images on Instagram a little over a year ago.
Yet, I started photographing with my Iphone and the hipstamatic app in 2011.

For the fun of it, I went back into my archive to see what I had shot back then with my phone and there are still so many little gems and stories there that haven’t been posted on my Instagram because of this timing gap.
So I decided to finish my week delving in my phone archive and posting images from the ‘old box’ sort of say.
