I photograph for Straatnieuws Den Haag/Rotterdam. A selection of my work is shown here. Streetnews is sold on the streets of Den Haag and Rotterdam. The people selling them are in fact entrepreneurs, since they buy the newspaper from Straatnieuws and sell them with a profit, and often a donation. Please buy the paper if you see a seller at your local supermarket.
