Time for change.
as most of you probably have noticed, i haven’t been posting much recently and i feel you deserve an explanation for that.
after being around on instagram for 4 years i lost my appetite for creation and i started to notice that these ‘digital hunger games’ slowly pushed me away from who i really am as a photographer.
on top of that, i realised that much of the work i’ve done so far has been of little significance.
conformity was killing my creativity.
purpose & meaning started to itch.
therefore, on march 1st 2018, 15 months ago, i boarded an adventure to rediscover what photography means to me.
a journey that took me to places like papua, uganda, patagonia and the himalayas but most importantly, a journey to the very core of what it means to be a photographer in the 21st century.
in times of environmental, social and political instability.
on a planet that’s dying.
i spoke to many people from lots of different backgrounds & spend significant time in nature.
while doing so i discovered narratives that exceed far beyond the limits of instagram.
so i decided to step back for a while to create room to breathe, to think, to digest and to appreciate.
as a result i started @because.people.matter
to celebrate rediscovering what photography means to me.
and after a long period of absence i’m recharged for a new start so let’s stir things up a little here. i hope you’re with me for another 4 amazing years 😘
