Joske is a Visual Storyteller & Researcher, based in Amsterdam.

With her curiosity about the world and its many cultures, she wants to keep discovering it and passing it on with storytelling in her own way.

She explores unseen but valuable details in everyday life and then brings them to life. But also by researching social subjects or issues in the form of narrative images. By adopting an investigative approach, she keeps on asking herself questions. An answer is not always the goal, leaving room for individual interpretation. In this way, the viewer is given time to reflect on the matter and each person can give their own answer.

The research is always expressed in images, in which she also searches for other ways to use the photographic medium, both analogue and digital. In doing so, she creates her own world that feels a little surrealistic and absurd.
