Born in 1988, I grew up in Bartlehiem (Friesland) on a shipyard with my mom, dad and sister.
My father gave me a small photocamera when I was thirteen years old.
I photographed the flat surroundings and hated them. I loved watching American films.
Now I'm a documentary filmmaker who likes to film faces and flat surroundings.
