Most of our lives occur in a reality that is a complex of narratives and social scripts. It dictates the way we behave and how we interpret what we see. With my photography I explore these scripts. I have an interest in anomalies or unintended consequences that generate a different awareness when put in focus. Through exposing the beauty and ubiquity of idiosyncrasy, I research the way our socially constructed, anthropocentric world relates to its universal environment.
I use both digital and analog processes and prefer to work in thematic series. My pictures are the result of a long process of thought, research and a constant questioning of the photographic process and its language. Working in series allows me to carefully choose the aesthetic approach that matches a coherent narrative, leaving space to include different art forms.
I was born in Belgium and am currently based out of Florence (Italy) and Santa Barbara, CA. As a child I already expressed great interest in using a camera, however the choice to fully adopt photography as an artistic skill was made after building a career in music and feeling the need for another artistic medium to express myself. I have enjoyed teachings and guidance by Andrea Firetto, Alessandro Michelazzi, Francesco Morandini, Niccolò Chimenti, Franco Guardascione, Jacopo Santini, Liesbet Grupping and Ann Gewillig.
