My self-portraits are a quest for identity. How are you seen if you don't fit into the 'normal' image? How far can I go and still be seen as a human being? My face is not recognizable in this series. Does this mean you don't get a chance to judge based on looks? Does it make you think? Do you really know what you're looking at? Or does this lead to a (pre)judgment?
In this series I photograph LHBTI+ people in their familiar surroundings with the question in mind: where, with whom, with what or when can you be yourself? A recurring symbol is the pink triangle as a sign that you can be who you are. * The texts are still in Dutch. Soon available in English.
Color and composition always play a role in my work. This keeps coming back from my study at the art academy AKI in Enschede In the 90s. There I graduated as a fashion designer. I like to surprise the viewer with my images. Whether it concerns portraits or other work. Have you been inspired and would you like to know more about Eep Photo?

I photograph these people in such a way that they don't notice it at first. Most of the time I only take one spontaneous picture. Sometimes they see me and start posing, unfortunately this does not always work for me. But every now and then there is a beautiful pose.
In the series: Beautiful I visit friends and 'strangers' We start a conversation and look at the house, the things, hobbies and collections. Together with the story I hear, this is the inspiration for a photo series. I choose one image that best represents the person and situation for me. The person portrayed writes the story that accompanies it. * The texts are still in Dutch. Soon available in English.
In project fetish I show the diversity of fetishes and what they mean in the lives of these men. A fetish is generally a "beloved object," but it is also an object of special sexual interest. I want to investigate and visualize that. By having a conversation I discover what the fetish means in their lives and how I can visualize it.
