Capturing the Zeitgeist as life slips by.

Inspired by writers such as Hans Fallada, Joseph Roth and Martha Gellhorn.

Allowing myself to observe and not participating. Allowing myself to be nobody.

What means my presence in the world,

Is an encounter a coincidence,

Creating my own reality,

I capture my gaze in pixels which I can adapt to a new reality or, I leave it as it was. is a website of freelance Dutch documentary and street photographer Pieter Brantjes.
