sense of presence  

summer 2021 - ongoing

Insects play a vital role in our lives but their important role often remain underexposed. How often do they not escape our attention, especially the nocturnal ones? However understandable this is, as in our modern live inconspicuousness is not a highly valued quality, for a whole range of species it is of utmost importance.

In an unprecedented way these images show us a coexisting world with aesthetics that are characteristic for the beauty and unpredictability of nature. All right above our heads. A world that is modest yet spectacular, worldly yet magical and common yet extraordinary.

The majority of images was made in and around Rotterdam, where I live. I hope they’ll find their way into the world to reach a bigger audience. To create a better view on our surroundings, how one can relate to nature on a differen level and last but not least: to show how much joy and wonder nature can provide.

Note: these are single exposures, not computermade collages.
