My father is Belgian and my mother is Portuguese, culturally they couldn’t be greater opposites— one is calm and collected, the other passionate and vivacious— a contrast that I have grown to appreciate and love. I grew up hopping from one continent to the other, so cultural diversity and constant travel is something I’m very familiar with. As a child, I wasn’t too fond of the constant change, but now I look forward to the next get away, the next adventure, the next shock to the system.
Becoming a photographer has given me an outlet to express the contrasts I witness in my surroundings, and a way to better understand the people that are at home within them. I hope to continue travelling, creating both conceptual and tangible memories through the lens of my camera, and learning always more about the beauty of contrasts.
