Hi, my name is Marleen, a typical girl from the Netherlands. Over the last two years I photographed my neighbours, documenting their ideas of home. I decided to give up my own house and start travelling for one year and stay over with locals.

As a professional photographer I make stories about your feeling of 'home'. I really got interested in the revolution of 'minimalism'. Why are we buying so much stuff for our house?

We are more stressed out than ever, to be able to buy whatever we want. I decided to create more experiences and consume less. I don’t have a plan or pre-defined route. Check out where I'm going next.
