The museum is located in the Overhoeks area of Amsterdam. There is a a cinematography museum which was formerly called Filmmuseum and was founded in 1952.

My photography focusses mainly on (fine art) Architecture where I feel like I'm having a look through the eyes of the architect. I like to shoot the smallest abstract details to the complete buildings to tell the complete story in all it's shapes and forms.
