My photography is driven by my commitment to human rights, gender equality and other social issues. Through the choice of subjects, I am exploring human qualities such as unselfishness, commitment and courage. The engagement of those I portray is a source of inspiration, doing them justice my challenge. A person being beautifully captured is for me insufficient. I strive to make portraits that communicate the importance, seriousness or urgency of the matter at hand, whether that means giving voice to threatened human rights defenders or to role models that inspire young women to realise their dreams and potential. Sometimes, the story is better told through a documentary, at other times through a combination of a reportage, portraits and text or sound, the project on sexual violence in Congo being one example of such a hybrid project. I also like to explore my own roots, and the culture of both my native and my current home country, Sweden and the Netherlands. Each project is preceded by thorough research and most projects are long term - I often work on them for several years.
