I’m a photographer based in Amsterdam, Netherlands. I take candid, unposed photographs of interactions between strangers and their everyday surroundings.
I like how an apparently everyday moment can become a short story when photographed.
How a non–scripted moment looks that odd, meaningful, beautiful or funny that it looks scripted. But it isn't. I am thrilled when I succeed in doing this.

This tumblr page is more or less a mirror of my Flickr page.
I tweet mostly selfpromotion hotchpotch here.
Of course there is a Facebook page.
And I'm on Stellar too – do try this, it's supar.

You can find my portfolio at casparclaasen.com
