Welcome

In my recent work ( On second glance, Close to Home, Verge ) I draw my attention to the visual information around us which we barely register or ignore altogether. By wandering around I am absorbed in the timeless process of photographing shapes and forms revealing a beauty that is not obvious and only there for a brief moment, resulting in a feeling of satisfaction and content. What I find interesting while walking the same route that my visually familiar surroundings become almost invisible and I discover images. I try to isolate and abstract elements focusing on lines, geometric shapes and colour within the square, presented to me from these seemingly random occurrences.
I am also working on a long term project focusing on trees and on the change of colours throughout the seasons

For my earlier projects I worked in medium format and film.
Since travelling to Tel Aviv in 2000, reflections in water have become the central theme of my photographic work.
I walked along the beach and became fascinated by the unpredictable constantly changing light reflected in the sea.
The series Play of Light has a painterly richness, which seems to defy the mechanical nature of the photographic process. The constantly changing rhythm of the reflections seems to echo the unreliability of memory.
Since 2003 I have been taking pictures of the canal in Amsterdam (series Resonance, Red Lights) and of the Basingstoke Canal (series Stille, Winterstille, Icescape) between West Byfleet and Woking,Surrey.
The canal is a never-ending source of wonder; the ponds between the locks are stagnant pools that are sensitive to minute changes in light, wind climate and the seasons. Freezing the motion of water or framing a small part of it, the image becomes an abstraction, of something that exists only for the briefest of moments. There is poetry within the constantly rippling water.

Living on the Basingstoke Canal, water is omnipresent in our everyday life; you have no choice but to respect its presence. The boat moves up and down with the changing water levels and is buffeted by the wind. On the canal the weather and the seasons feel much more an integral part of our life rather than just something experienced as we look out of the window. This connection to nature has left an indelible stamp on the work I produce now.
