When they arrived at the peak of the mountain, they knew it instantly: this is the place. They both felt it. After many quests and travels, Wouter and Wildrik finally found the perfect location for their spiritual retreat, Mandali. At the edge of Lago d’Orta in Northern Italy, they were deeply affected by the mystical views and breathtaking surroundings.
As a photographer and journalist I have documented many projects for NGO’s, charities and idealistic organizations. Throughout the years I have also passionately produced travel and interior reportages for magazines and tourist boards. With my photography and writing I hope to touch something within people, by bringing awareness about what’s often regarded as insignificant or less important. I try to emphasize the beauty of everyday life, the miracles of nature, power and positivity in every individual.
I am a connector, a storyteller with the skills to find a unique angle to turn stories into actual publications. In my role as (Charity) Media Agent, I connect charities and NGO’s to media contacts, ensuring branding and publications within a variety of magazines. My motto: “Good things come to those who make them happen.” I like to help other people and want to contribute to a better, healthier and more loving world.
