A Whisper In Hagley Woods | 2020 – 2023
A Whisper In Hagley Woods is centred on a mysterious unsolved murder case that was committed during World War II. In 1943, four boys found the skeleton of a woman in a hollow tree in Hagley Wood, UK. Despite a thorough investigation, the victim was never identified and no suspects were ever arrested. The photo book juxtaposes exclusive forensic photographs from the crime and 35mm landscape photographs shot in the forest in which the aforementioned crime occured, so many years ago.
Ann Hodges: The Woman That Was Hit By A Meteorite | 2021
Experimental short documentary
In 1954, an Alabama woman named Ann Hodges was hit by a meteorite that crashed through the roof of her home. For years, this was the only documented case of an extra-terrestrial object injuring a human being. Despite turning Ms. Hodges into an overnight celebrity, the bizarre event marked the beginning of her tragic demise.
Leading Ladies | 2020
I made this photobook in order to reflect on the leading ladies starring in Alfred Hitchcock’s films. I took an random screenshots of every leading female character in Hitchcock’s fifteen colour films and printed them on transparent paper. Despite being praised as one of the best and most influental directors of all time, Hitchcock was known for a very particular taste in casting when it came to his leading actresses.
Pastel Landscapes | 2018 – 2019
Over the course of 2018 and 2019 I travelled to the United States, 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 minimalist aesthetic, which I found in architecture, sunlight, shadow and pastel colours.
Bijlmer Bajes | 2018
Commissioned photo series
In 2018, I worked as a volunteer in ‘Het Tijdelijk Museum’, which was located in the former Penitentiaire Inrichting Amsterdam Over-Amstel, better known as Bijlmerbajes. This penitentiary housed some of The Netherlands’ most infamous criminals like Willem Holleeder and Ferdi Elsas. Before the demolition of the Bijlmer Bajes, I wanted to preserve the atmosphere and history of this remarkable building through a series of photographs. For Creators By Vice, I took digital photographs of the interior as well as the exterior of the prison.
Mountains of Men | 2017
Mixed media photo series
For the series ‘Mountains of Men’, I edited my own photographs as well as appropriated promotional headshots from Hollywood actors/executives to reflect on the 2017 ‘Me Too’ allegations of sexual abuse, harassment and sex crimes in Hollywood. The project gradually evolved from me experimenting with collage techniques to a more layered series about cinematic objectification, the anonimity of victimhood and the shifting power dynamics between actors and directors.
