Photography

I have received training as an architect/scenographer but am autodidact within photography.

I have always been fascinated by the magic of photography, the beauty of images created by different cameras, each with its own specific characteristics.

My preference lies within analogue photography, with a specific appeal for my panoramic pinhole camera, handmade by Willy de Smet.

I also enjoy to experiment with different printing techniques such as traditional gums and cyanotypes, as well as with the more contemporary technique of chemigrams.

I am truly fascinated by the endless possibilities of photography. Curiosity and the desire to experiment instills my work with a sense of joyful diversity.
