Artist Statement

I'm a documentary photographer with a keen interest in socially sensitive subjects and issues that do not generate extensive media coverage.

This new project is part of a broader investigation I’ve been pursuing over several years and which aims to make socially sensitive subjects that don’t receive a lot of media attention, more visible.

In recent years I’ve covered the social consequences of blindness, the subject of sex when you have a disability, as well as a family on the periphery of society.

Biography

In 1987 I graduated as a graphic designer at St. Lucas college, Ghent (Belgium) with distinction. Immediately after graduation I started working as an art director for various advertising agencies in Brussels.

In 1998 I started my own business, called Bubble www.bubble.be. For years it was considered one of the most creative web design agencies in Belgium. I'm currently still the creative director and director of Bubble.

In 2008 I started a 4 year course in documentary photography at St. Joost Art Academy in Breda (the Netherlands).
