Born in Bandung, Indonesia, as a son of Dutch parents. As the upsurging nationalist movement threatened the existence of Dutch companies and citizens in Indonesia, the family returned to Holland.
Studied Political and Social Sciences in Amsterdam and the Free University, Berlin. Besides these studies actively engaged in photography, sculpture, object art, performance.
After return to Amsterdam, joined an experimental commune of artists in the city's centre. In this "utopian laboratory", about 60 young artists from all over Europe lived and worked together. The members would share their income in order to finance artistic and social projects, organize theatre performances, produce video films. Moreover, the community functioned as a self-organised art academy, with daily courses in nude drawing, painting, theatre and dance.
Since 1986: Lived in Munich and developed artistic projects in a more individual way. Return to photography as preferred medium. See Projects
