Street Art Moments ‘Street Art Moments’ presents a selection of photographs that feature street art in its environment. Rich in beauty, message and meaning – real or imagined, and expressed by juxtaposition or (re)interpretation -, the photographs are all multi-layered. They capture what I experienced in the moment: what touched or intrigued me, or put a smile on my face. The scenes in my photographs are not staged or digitally manipulated; it is all street photography. Drawn to contemporary, big, bold and colorful, I have documented the street art scene for 6 years and am working on a book that features both the art and the artists.

In a nutshell: born and raised in the Netherlands, Sausalito houseboat community resident, career in mediating intrastate conflicts around the world and writing about peace processes, passionate salsa dancer and street photographer. Most influential photography teacher and mentor: Ricardo Barros, with whom I studied in Princeton, NJ.

Live, Love.
