Christian was born in 1966 near Eindhoven, the Netherlands. Currently he lives and works in Amsterdam, where he graduated at the Photo Academy in 2016. Christian considers his work as a roadtrip through an imaginary world, wherein separate moments in real life are combined into new ones. The world he creates is dystopic and often surrealistic and filled with symbolism, inhabited by lonely people with lost dreams of love and fortune.
Artist Statement: I take photographs in an urban environment - feeling lonely between thousands of others. Looking for love and meaning. This serie is about a Japanese man in a metro. A girl passes by, and he doesn't notice her, while he is asleep. But she seems to alter his dreams. I am very much inspired by Murakami, in my opinion the greatest living writer. His surrealistic novels feed my imagination. This serie is a hommage to Murakami.
