Initially trained as a photographer and researcher (BFA, MFA, MA) at several universities in the Netherlands, I am currently finalising a practice based doctoral thesis and run a hybrid artistic practice in which I continuously switch roles; from photographer to researcher, from curator to teacher.
Most of the photographs I make and do things with come from – and show fragments of pasts on – the African continent in general and east African country Uganda in particular. As part of my practice I digitise, share and activate photo collections that were previously not accessible on different platforms. They find their way onto the archival platform www.HIPUganda.org, in exhibitions and in publications.
The exhibitions and publications are both presentations of research results and experiments leading to next stages of the things I do. They try to contribute to a growing understanding of histories told in various contexts and to diverse audiences.
