Animal Ambulance / 2018 - ongoing
I've joined the Animal Ambulance region ‘s-Hertogenbosch as a volunteer in 2018, because I was looking for a way to be outside more and to put myself in unpredictable situations. We help wild and domesticated animals in need, such as rabbits, owls, hedgehogs, pigeons and cats. At the same time, we find and bring them in places they don't belong. Sometimes I wonder: are we really helping them, or only stressing them more?
On a daily basis we also encounter all kinds of small or larger social issues, such as human influences on nature, pet neglect, lonely people, malfunctioning relationships, ecological phenomena like draught or illnesses. By photographing I explore the connection between people and animals and I capture the discrepancy in our work.
