Influenced by my own Surinam/Dutch background, subjects as post-colonialism, power relations and cultural hybridity have always been strong forces behind my work.

Living for certain amounts of time in Surinam I developed the longing for documenting unseen stories of minorities within different societies. All the while letting the observer question the borders between oppressor/opressed, love/hate, feminism/sexualism and escapism/reality.
