Born as Maarten Kuiper in Alkmaar, a city in the Netherlands, in 1983 and since struggling to find my place in this ever changing world, I have found solace in photography because it lets me freeze, create, reshape and recapture. Freeze time to capture the important moments, create stories and persons, reshape the world as I see fit and recapture the magic that was so apparent when I was a child but had almost lost along the way. Writing, for me, is in the same vein. Hence the fountain pen in the Photojitsu logo. Writing in light and words, but writing nonetheless. I sincerely hope that you will find my website, photographs and blog to your liking.
