I graduated from the University of Leiden in 2008 with a Master’s degree in Cultural Anthropology and Development Sociology. I have been on the road throughout the years.

At the moment, I am in Latin America together with Jurriaan van Eerten. He writes; I take the pictures, and together we have published multiple stories in newspapers, magazines and on the internet.


 Published stories in: Trouw, De Volkskrant, Leidsch Dagblad, VICE NL, VICE, Al Jazeera, Het Parool, SAMPOL, KidsWeek, OneWorld, OneWorld Magazine, The Tico Times, De Tijd.

If there are pictures you would like to buy, you are more than welcome to visit Fine Are America. If the picture you wish to buy is not there, just let me know so I can arrange this for you.
