Images have the same effect on Niels as the way music does. It can hit him without knowing what it was. Niels is a lousy musician but a great observer. Observing is what Niels does. Unveiling what is behind an image is what Niels finds interesting. It takes both distance as closeness to do so. He loves the challenges of commissioned assignments. It is a valuable counterpart of his personal work. In both Niels searches for the same thing: People in their everyday behaviour. How they relate to each other, how they stand out, but mostly how they are alike. To expose the message of an image is what interests Niels.
