I work on long-term photographic projects fuelled by my curiosity for socio-economic and/or political situations. Topics such as labor migration in a global economic system, diaspora communities and national identity in post-colonial regions fascinate me and inform my projects.
In the past, I have worked intensively with graphic designers and fashion designers, these experiences enrich my current practice, which has a more documentary starting point.

I constantly look for a visual language that best suits my story at that time; a method I translate to exhibitions, larger than life pictures, loose posters, maps and spatial installations. Because of this way of working, my presentations are often site-specific.
