I'm a documentary photographer with a keen interest in socially sensitive subjects and issues investigated from an alternative perspective.
These projects are part of a broader investigation I’ve been pursuing. In recent years I’ve covered in 'Touch' about the social consequences of blindness; in '(Un)expected' about the coping process of surviving relatives of suicides, and in 'Shaky Ground' about the urgency of the past (First World War) in the perspective of a sustainably united Europe.
In 2008 I started a 4 year course in documentary photography at St. Joost Art Academy in Breda (the Netherlands).
In 1998 I started my own business, called Bubble (now wiender.com). For years it was considered one of the most creative web design agencies in Belgium.
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.
