After 12 years of marketing in advertising agencies, like Ogilvy&Mather, BK&P and DMB&B, Erik decided to follow his passion for photography. Since 1998 he had the opportunity to work for a lot of inspiring agencies and clients. Next to the commissioned assignments Erik was working on different personal projects. His Bushman project resulted in a book, Noir, with a DVD. Human, showing the fragility of humans is also published as a book. The other two projects, Papua and Mother, are still works in progress and will be published later.
