Pastel Landscapes (2018 – 2019)
Over the course of 2018 and 2019 I travelled to Morocco, Indonesia and Vietnam. There, I took pictures of beautiful spots in cities that are easily overlooked. With the series, i tried to capture abstract beauty in unexpected and deteriorating places. While travelling, I tried to capture a certain aesthetic, which I found in architecture, light and pastel colours. With the series, I reflect on society in a global future in which more and more people live in a concrete jungle. Inspired by Edward Hopper and Singaporean photographer Nguan, I wandered through busy city districts to look for quiet beauty in the middle of the vibrant city life. Creators by Vice published a Dutch article on my Moroccan photos, which you can find here.
This series got me nominated for the New Photography Talent exhibition, organised by Gup. A picture of this series was on show during their annual exhibition in the Melkweg in 2018.
