"I’m a Belgian photographer living in Ghent, married and father to a son. I was introduced to photography as a young kid in the early 70’s and later studied graphical arts and photography. During my studies, I got hold of the darkroom course by Belgian Magnum photographer Carl De Keyser and together with the Ansel Adam’s books on zone photography it made me very confident in printing black & white. Since 1992 I’ve been working as a professional photographer, mainly shooting environmental portraits for magazines and newspapers, alongside my personal uncommissioned work.
Besides photography I’m interested in literature and music (both as a listener and a player). I strongly believe there are a lot of similarities between music and visual arts. All is based on relationships between different elements within the song/picture and they both thrive on rhythm and cadence."
