My project, my mission…
Life is an incredible gift and a marvelous promise. Let’s celebrate it ! Every single being is unique and irreplaceable. From each human face , beams an unpossessable transcendence that wraps us up and glows within (Henri Maldiney).
Something in a light, in a flower, in a person strikes us with its enigmatic beauty, dazzles and mesmerizes. This is about authentic beauty, the one that expresses itself through integrity, stilness and truth.
It’s my attempt to pick up that splendid sparkle of life that soars from the deepest part of each being and that reaches out to that mysterious togetherness of all things. Grasp beyond, to the fullness of life, catch this fugitive awareness, so thrilled to share this immersive and poetic present moment experience of my eyes and heart with yours.
was born in Antwerp (Belgium). As a student in Roman philology at the University Saint-Ignatius, I joined the Flemish student union of young opera friends created by Gerard Mortier while he was director at the Royal Theatre La Monnaie in Brussels and later replaced by Bernard Foccroulle. I further studied for a masters degree in performing arts at the University Paris X Nanterre and became assistant to the Swiss-German theatre and opera director, Luc Bondy for several years on the international stage.
I discovered photography as a teenager. In parallel with my job as an assistant I started to work as a theatre photographer, driven by the German photographer Ruth Walz. Alongside this, I studied privately on my own and followed several photography courses and workshops. Occasionally I worked as an assistant on publicity campaigns.
In 2020, I created my portrait studio for children and adults.
Bronze award winner of the international "Portrait Masters" awards in January and August 2020 for a serie of portraits. In January 2021, I received the same Bronze award winner, category “professional standard” for another selection of portraits.
