When he was a kid, LEX wanted to be a doctor but that all changed when he started poking around at the art academy where his brother studied. He himself ended up going to the photography academy in Den Haag, graduating in 1985 to launch a career in image making. He can film anything, every genre, technical or commercial: it doesn’t matter one single bit. But if you ask him what he likes the most, he’ll most certainly tell you it’s films in which he can make reality a little bit nicer, a little bit more beautiful than it already is. What he also likes a lot, is taking his VW T3 Westfalia on trips. He simply loves cars, always has, and knows everything about them. It’s a trait he probably inherited from his grandpa who was a mechanic and owned a garage. The whole thing also makes him excellent in remembering number plates. The ones of the cars his dad had, he still knows by heart. Maybe you can say he just has something with numbers.
