At the age of 18 I went to Syntra Hasselt in Belgium to start taking photography classes. After I graduated I wanted to further expand my vision and started at the Academy of Fine Arts in Hasselt (SASK) where I got my diploma Higher Grade in Photography (2006) & Specialisation Grade in Photography (June 2009).
My main focus of interest is black-and-white film and wet plate collodion photography (conceptual, landscape & abstract) where I work with mid- and large format cameras up to 8×10”. I mainly work from my house in Maastricht where I have built a sufficient darkroom and studio to suit my needs.
My goal is to learn and work with different kinds of alternative photographic processes and in the coarse of time help spreading the knowledge in collaboration with others so that it may never disappear.
