I am a Brussels based professional photographer. My work can be best described as being driven by close personal contact and socially and environmentally relevant themes. I concluded a master class in documentary photography with the LCC University of Arts – London and Magnum Photo in 2014, and worked as a freelance photographer for the Guardian. Besides being a photographer, I am also active as a psychologist and a member of the Belgian National Association of Professional Photographers.
