I believe that vulnerability makes us a nicer human beings and that this makes the world a little more friendly and more understanding.
People who show themselves vulnerable give the other the confidence that they themselves may be who they are.
When I meet people who touch and inspire me me in one way I want to show the things they touch in me. I specially become enthousiast when I see more layers of their personality at the same time. I found it very exciting to try to capture this in my portraits.
self portrait of vulnerability and sadness that I only dare to appoint in images but not in words.
