'De Graaf takes a big pleasure in photographing everyday life, details and city perspectives that's right in front of you -but sometimes hard to see when hurryng past it'. -Uppsala fotofestival-

'How can an image evoke inspiration, when we may not know the person in the picture and have never traveled to where the photo was taken? My goal is to inspire those to look more carefully at the world around them to discover beauty in unusual places'.
