About Ivan Mervillie
"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.

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."
