As a person I am fascinated by humans. What they do, what they feel, what they say. And even more so important. Who they really are.

Influenced by the all-time greats by the likes of James Nachtwey, Joseph Koudelka, Sebastiao Salgado, Steve McCurry, and Stephan Vanfleteren  I decided to tell my own photo stories... Some of them led me to document the life in Israel and the Palestinian territories, other times it led me to capture the beautiful souls of the people in Iran...

Most of my work from those kind of journeys  is fine art and documentary based, but as a photographer, and most importantly, story teller, I am not afraid of using those skills in my commercial work...

Whether it’s spending a day with a athlete or yogi, shooting a brand, a event, or to tell the wonderful story of the streets…

Everyone has a story and I want to capture it and tell it to the wold.
