As a photographer and a social designer, I focus on visualizing complex social issues and on developing methods to deal with these issues. A conduct that I use to approach social issues is through reframing, creating a new perspective on current problems.

My projects mostly touch upon questions and problems that are ongoing and are too complex to have an immediate solution, but also bring the opportunity to create methods to treat these issues.

Combining my focus on these societal problems with the medium of photography, I am able to increase the awareness of these issues through visualization and present my findings and methods to the public.
