The Day the Birds stopped Singing is a poetical photobook about the feeling of anger, uncertainty and incomprehension of growing up in a dying world. Through flashed-in black and white photographs of young adults, city birds and the local parks I am creating visual metaphors that convey this liminal feeling we experience in a time where we leave behind the comforts of childhood and face the consequences of adulthood. What do we have our wings for if there is nowhere to land?

Sunshiners #01 Common Problems

zine 32 (100% recycled) pages, A5, black and white, self published

The first issue of Sunshiners is focused on a public bouldering spot located under the local railtracks of Schiedam-station. With Common Problems I show what happens when cities decide to make the public space a common space again. In the end this issue became a collaborative, somewhat political, time documentation of three monts climbing under a railtrack filled with stories of the people I met there.
