SEE the new campaign for Vlisco showcases a variety of eye-catching designs that blend together in beautiful harmony. It’s fitting that the final campaign of the year pays tribute to the precious bond between mothers and their grown-up daughters. This season’s designs flow with beautiful illusions full of depth and perspective this was also the starting point of the photography concept. The more you look, the more you discover.
For the exhibition ‘Ode to Dutch Fashion’ I photographed 76 historical designs in typically Dutch settings. The exhibition and accompanying catalogue featured over a hundred creations from the past century of Dutch Fashion design in different areas. In collaboration with art director Maarten Spruyt I developed a photography concept for each style and period. The exhibition is on view until February 7th 2016 at Gemeente Museum Den Haag.
For generations, African women have worn expressive Vlisco designs to speak their thoughts and share their feelings – without saying a word. The TELL collection celebrates this cherished tradition, passed on from mother to daughter. Each new design offers a sparkling and sophisticated voice for today’s unforgettable stories. In collaboration with Vlisco I developed a concept in which the set design was inspired this specific elements in their designs.

A group exhibition ‘There’s something happening here’ at the Brancolini Grimaldi Gallery in London. Showcasing the work of a new generation of photographers curated by James Reid and Tom Watt. In these troubled and uncertain times of upheaval and dissent on a global scale, a new generation of photographers and image-makers is emerging. Steeped in the process and versed in the psychology of the medium, they are exploring angst, neuroses, notions of fragility and identity and the subjectivity of photography itself.
The photographers included in the exhibition come from a diverse range of photographic backgrounds: from fashion and still life to complex conceptual work. Despite the diversity of their practice, shared interests emerge and the conventional boundaries of photography are challenged and played with.
In cooperation with Barrie Hullegie i participated at the Berlin Art weekend.The group show is composed of work from four artists who are living and working in Amsterdam.
