Born and raised outside the city Tjerk developed a strong love for the outdoor scenery.
With a sense for ambience and a particular interest in people he picked up his dads VHS-camera to document what he saw.
His work is a combination of documentary and fashion with a nostalgic touch to it.
This specific nostalgic influence became even stronger during his study on the film academy in Brussels. He prefers to express himself is with the use of analogue photography.
