I'm a snapshot photographer observing daily life in Amsterdam.

always on my bike ... very occasionally I get off, Dennis

Lost in Amsterdam

My work mainly focuses on my personal conflict of feeling lost in this world. I’m looking for both the quiet and busy moments, unnoticed corners and rushed life in Amsterdam. Maybe I’m just trying to connect.

For me the streets are a dangerous, fearful and chaotic place. I don't like confrontations. I don't like people in general. And I'm even afraid to photograph out there.

I pretend to be tougher than I am. I play mister nice guy. The Joker. Big smile. However most of the time I really don't care at all. I'm very interested in little to nothing. And always busy doing things close to unimportant.

I'd rather be safe at home and not go out.

That's probably why the streets are calling me. I need to fight my demons. 

Maybe capturing the streets will help me find some order in my chaos. 

I shoot in a quick, simple, childish and raw candid lomography, Wabi-Sabi snapshot style, mostly on my bike.

I need to share my images so it exists. Mainly for self help meditation. 

Lost in Amsterdam is just my rehabilitation wonderland trying to understand my meaning in the making.
