sense of presence 

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

In an unprecedented way the images show us a coexisting world with
aesthetics that are characteristic for the beauty and unpredictability of nature.
All 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 different
level and last but not least: to show how much joy and wonder nature can
