about image


My name is Lida Houkes, I am a photographer based close to Rotterdam.
Photography has always been my passion. I developed my eye and techniques following courses and workshops.
In 2018 I took it to the next level and graduated from the School voor Fotografie in Breda.

Streetphotography has my biggest interest. Out there on the streets searching for an image that cannot be staged.
It is an adventure every single time to capture a scene in which people play a small or a bigger role...
...but always an essential one.
