New work with photographer Aisha Zeijpveld and fashion designer Lise de Natris for Het Scheepvaartmuseum (The National Maritime Museum) in Amsterdam. Our work is part of "The Ultimate Sailor" exhibition (on view until the 29th of September 2016).

Since ages, 'the' sailor has been rooted in caricatural and stereotypical representations: as protector of the nation, as saviour of the almost drowned, as a dissolute Jack Tar, as a masculine and virile character, tamer of the elements, as a sexsymbol for both women and men. The popular image of 'the' sailor is – and always has been – a cultural and contemporary projection.

In The Ultimate Sailor: under construction four contemporary Dutch photographers reflect on the way persistent stereotypical representations resonate in today's conceptions of 'the' sailor.

I'm currently working on a new excited (art direction) project called Symmetry. A film by Ruben van Leer starring choreographer Lukas Timulak (NDT) and Soprano Claron McFadden. Premiere March 14th - Eye Film Museum.

Symmetry is a 20-minute sci-fi dance & opera film, in which CERN-researcher Lukas is thrown off balance while working on the theory of everything and the smallest particle. Through Claron's singing he rediscovers love, on an endless expanse of ice. She takes him along to a space before the Big Bang, when time didn’t exist; a love with no end.

I'm currently working on a commercial for one of my
favorite hotels: CitizenM. Stay tuned.

"A collection of innovative concept, citizenM is a hotel driven by one desire: to create affordable luxury for the people. By "the people," we mean a smart new breed of international traveler, the type who crosses continents the way others cross streets. This includes the weekenders, the suits, fashion baggers and affair havers. The explorers, adventurers and dreamers. Those who travel the world with big hearts and wide eyes. Those who are independent, yet united by a love of the five continents. Those in search of business, shopping or art. In short, everyone who is a mobile citizen of the world. Most likely, that also means you."
