Silence is becoming rare.
In the continuous flow of sounds and images it can seem like time is slipping through our fingers. When we pay close attention, we can really appreciate the things we focus on; we lose track of time, and experience the moment on a deeper level. Photography is a means for stopping time. I photograph quiet areas in The Netherlands, where silence is protected and you can hear the wind soaring through the trees.

Sanctuary was part of Utrecht In Motion together with the work of four other photographers.

The triptych was on view at the new station square in 2019 and at the Forum in 2020, both public area at Utrecht Central.
