Hi, I’m Milene, a documentary photographer from The Hague. I am fascinated by everything that threatens to disappear.

I like to record what strikes me and often escapes the eye of others; the unknown in the known, the unusual in the usual and the normal in the abnormal. Far and near. What fascinates me is the strange in the normal, the perfect imperfections of our existence and our way of life. I love the stories I read in people’s eyes and the history that lies behind the wrinkles on their faces.

I am at my best while travelling, exploring the different cultures with a special interest in the local cuisines and beliefs.

In 2019 I published a book about a local cultural phenomenon: Bakkie Pleuâh.
