I make photographs. And I work in between visual arts and social issues as a projectmanager at Academie voor Beeldvorming.
Animal Ambulance / 2018 - ongoing
I joined the Animal Ambulance region ‘s-Hertogenbosch as a volunteer in 2018. When I was ‘hired’, with no prior experience, I found myself in a group of 25 other volunteers. We help wild and domesticated animals in need, such as rabbits, foxes, owls, hedgehogs, pigeons, dogs and cats.
On a daily basis we encounter all kinds of small or larger social issues, such as human influences on nature, pet neglect, loneliness among elderly people, malfunctioning relationships, ecological phenomena like draught or illnesses.
By photographing I capture what I experience during the work at the animal ambulance and I explore the connection between people and animals.
