Next week our National museum, Rijks Museum, will re-open after 10 years!! renovation. De Volkskrant gave me a assignment to make a work about the furnishing of the exhibition. I don’t think i will ever see this Painting of Rembrandt without any other visitors around me again.

voies off site

If you are in Arles, France! you have to visit the Voies off Galerie because they put up a very nice show with my Shelter pictures.

Jan Cunen Museum

My Exhibition SOLO in the Jan Cunen Museum in Oss is running till 28 off August. Time flies so go en see it, if you can. If you go to, ‘Exhibition Shelter’ , in this site you can see more images from the exhibition.

Today a very nice article about my exhibition SOLO written by Merel Bem came out in De Volkskrant.

Today my new book called Solo came from the printer.. A small book designed by Robin Uleman for my exhibition in the Jan Cunen Museum. Its in Dutch, i’m sorry, but i will make an English translation from the interview if you like.

Last week I visited Calais after 1,5 year. As I expected nothing really changed. At this moment around 150 Immigrants are living in squats or tents in the surroundings of the port. They told me its still possible to cross to England, you only need a lot of perseverence and luck..

Its a little early, but the invitation is ready for my exhibition in the Jan Cunen Museum in Oss.

I Thought Shelter was SOLD OUT, but i found a few more on Amazone. So for those who do not have a copy, be quick!!

I’m happy to present you my new website. I hope this site will give you a better view on my work. You can find a webshop where you can buy books and Edition Prints.. The site is designed by Robin Uleman and made by Hans van Nieuwpoort. If you encounter any problems, please let me know. The site is not completely ready, there are missing some pages and texts.  In the next weeks I will fill the site with more work and background information.

During the opening of the exhibition Brand/Fire! i presented the first copy of our book BRAND/FIRE! to fire fighter Barry. A book i made with Anouk Steketee and Martin Luijendijk about the Amsterdam fire brigade. The book was designed by Kummer & Hermann. You can find it in my store, click here. It’s only 25 euro, a bargain.

Today the first city busses are driving trough Casablanca with my latest work for the project Of Other Spaces. If you would like to see where it’s about, have a look at the website


Today Vrij Nederland published my new serie’s Vigiland, in Dutch, Waakzaam. Next week the work will be exhibited in the Amsterdam City Archives on the vijzelstraat  32.

This charming picture was taken last week when I was working on a new project about Phosphate mines in Morocco. This project is part of an exchange programme  for Moroccan en dutch photographers.

Looking at farms from the sky is something special..

Today I started the photography for Document Nederland. This is the annual assignment from the Rijksmuseum and the Dutch newspaper NRC Handelsblad. The subject they gave is Food. An interesting, actual, big, but difficult topic. In the next year I will dive into the world of food and around March 2013 we will see what the outcome will be. One thing will be sure, this picture will not be in the series, because it’s to sweet.
