Born in Ruurlo, the Netherlands, in 1959.

For the last thirteen years I have been working on a photography project called Domestic Landscapes. This project is about light – natural daylight. The photos show how daylight illuminates the domestic interior, and how it dictated the way the interior was build, used and decorated. This specific light and the atmosphere it creates have their origins in the architecture of the pre-electricity era, when daylight was the main source of light. This kind of light started to disappear from European homes after World War II when the old way of building was abandoned. At this moment few of these homes remain.
