Ctrl.Alt.Img


‘Ctrl.Alt.Img’ was born out of my research about the representation of muslim women in the Dutch media. Ctrl.Alt.Img is a interactive booth that mimics the form and dynamics of a playful photo booth. Participants leave the booth with a printed memento capturing a photograph and an AI-generated image of themselves.

Research reports ‘Muslim Women in Dutch Media’


For years, I've been bothered by the stereotypical image of Muslim women in the Dutch media. That's why I conducted research into photos of Muslim women in the image bank of ANP and in Dutch newspapers. This resulted in two groundbreaking research reports.





‘Moslima’


In the two-part podcast series ‘Moslima’ I explore together with Maartje Duin how the portrayal of ‘the Muslim woman’ has developed over the years and how we can change that image.

The Power of Images


To bring my studies to the attention of colleagues (and a wider audience), I organized a change process in collaboration with Prospektor and the Pakhuis de Zwijger debate center.




A New Beginning


Who are you, and who do you want to become? And what if you had to reinvent yourself? In 'A New Beginning,' I collaborate with young individuals who, after their flight to the Netherlands, embark on a journey to discover their (new) identity.

The Game


The Game is a journalistic photo series that played a crucial role in my research prior to creating 'A New Beginning.' This series focuses on teenagers seeking refuge in unconventional sleeping arrangements, such as tents in muddy fields and abandoned buildings in Bosnia and Herzegovina.






Family Portraits


I was awarded the Stipendium Schiedams Water and, as part of this grant, created a series of family portraits of Schiedam residents with Turkish backgrounds.

First generation Turkish women


This is a multimedia project about the first generation Turkish women in the Netherlands. These women often worked very hard and contributed to the development of the Netherlands. However, their stories remain largely absent in Dutch image archives.
