Never thought I would, but I went back to working at a psychiatric facility. Not as a social worker as I used to but as a photographer. 

I'm an observer and I can show you what I see.

It always struck me how much misunderstanding there is about the people I worked with or the organizations I worked for. 

I find it very important to break taboos, to talk about all kind of mental illnesses or problems because I've learned a lot of people dealing with that feel lonely. Taboos and misunderstanding have a big role in that. That's why I wanted to go back, this time as a photographer. I know there are a lot of stories to tell. So here we are!

Aagje invited me to join her when she was going to deliver newspapers.
