On Loving Animals is a photo book about the Dutch and their obsessive, sentimental and sometimes inconsiderate love of animals.
Its aim is to show how the animals are part of our lives, and how we project our own needs onto these beasts. I spent a year
exploring Holland to meet with the owners of a variety of animals of all breeds and sizes, from an early age all the way to the grave.

THESIS For my thesis, which serves as the theoretical complement to this project, I’ve researched the way people perceive
animals and the way we depict them in art, photography and popular culture. The research is as much visual as it is theoretical.
