How did your passion for photography and videography manifest itself?
My interest for images first took shape through sports, mainly through snowboarding clips. Travel photography then became more present in my work, and finally evolved towards a focus on the representation of the harmony between human and nature.
These two aspects are omnipresent in your work. Why?
I have very little inclination to depict the unique beauty of a landscape. My goal is to turn towards stories, the cultures and the people I encounter, which are all at once so diverse yet so similar. Nature impacts culture and culture impacts nature. This precious interrelatedness brings a relief to the beauty of nature that we are surrounded by.
What does your preparation look like before a project?
Spontaneity plays a big role in my work. Yes, there are some general ideas that guide my camera lens, but the magic that occurs on location can never be planned. It’s a question of finding the balance between preparation and capturing the moment.
Can you describe to us what feeds your creative process?
A story in nature which ultimately brings us back to mankind.
