Two decades ago my fascination with Africa began to evolve when I spent 6 months in Gabon working on a project, after my graduation from Nyenrode Business school. The culture, stunning nature and the people with their special wit and humour intrigued me from the very beginning. I returned to this magnificent continent to travel from Morocco to South Africa and was deeply affected by the variety of landscapes and the beauty of the women that I encountered. Since this journey I knew I wanted to become a photographer to depict the independence, pride and sensuality of the African women. With these series I want to pay tribute to the land where my inner journey started and to the special women that came on my path who inspire me with their strength and courage.
