Photography

I started photographing when I was 12. From then onwards it has been a way of thinking and looking at things. Very fast I became aware of the fact that the history of photography was an important source of inspiration.

Very fast I became aware of the fact that the history of photography was an important source of inspiration.When I was looking at the old prints it seemed to me that the actual photography missed something.
In my search of this missing aspect in modern photography.
I studied photography, film and graphical arts at the Royal Academy of Fine Arts in Gent. I experimented with the "old" processes : Gum Printing, Cyanotypes, Platinum prints, etc. I was looking for a personal and contemporary language with the nineteenth century processes. I started to make montages, collages and paintings in which I combined my own pictures and old pictures. It is in this process that I created a fictional character "Monsieur Anonyme" which is my personal tribute to the pictures of anonymous photographers.
