In my opinion, documentary photography should only be called documentary if you pursue projects for many, many years. The last two years I’ve been travelling to a lot of shows, gradually becoming a part of the band’s family. It’s the only way to get to know the person behind the musician, revealing the band’s true personality and gain access to their real adventures.
Moshpit L<3ve is about a world of sweat, blood and grit shown through my wide angle lens. It’s about the bands I love, but also about all the people with whom I enjoy these shows. All photo’s are in gritty black and white with a hint of dirty flash.
The Grand East is a Dutch rock and soul band, originally from Diepenheim in the east of Netherlands but currently based in Utrecht. Since the beginning of 2016 I’m documenting their concerts and their adventures, travelling with an old tourbus throughout Holland.
Leeways is a Dutch reggae band, based in Arnhem. I started following them in 2015, in the period after they had won the Grote Prijs van Nederland until the end of the band in 2018.
GO FUND ME
Do you like my stories? And want to fund more of them? You can! In my opinion independancy, freedom and quality are more important than earning a lot of money with my documentary photography series. That’s the main reason I have been funding my documentary series by myself for the last years. The bands I travel with, usually play for a small fee, therefore they don’t have to pay me. They do support me while being on the road with them, for example by paying for food and arranging places to sleep.
From now it’s possible to support my documentary photo work. Do you enjoy my photography on Instagram (@10uzz) or elsewhere? It’s possible to donate a small amount of money so I can keep up the good work! https://gf.me/u/xq6pwi
