Some people can tell a hole story about their life and enthousiasm or love for photography.
Some people don't tell a hole story about their life and don't express their love for photography as much.
Well, I'm that second type of person.
I like photography and like to experiment and learn new things, but also like the photographers from the past.
That's why you will not just find 'one' style in my photography, although I like black and white photography.
Black and white photography resembles my personality a bit.
It's reflecting the essence and avoiding the distracting elements. It's direct and focused.
It does not shout colors but is a bit more calming down. It's more timid.
I hope you can enjoy my work of art and that I stimulate you to reflect on the things we see every day.

Observe and register
Street photography should be the purity and simplicity of photography. SFFC: See, Frame, Focus and Click. The essence in street photography is 'see' and 'frame'. This is the added value of the photographer. You have to 'see' things in public and 'frame' them how you would like to tell this situation/story to your public.
You do not direct but observe and register.
