My photography is about architecture as space, as poetry…
I am interested in investigating the unique identity of space in order to reveal its character, the depth of insight. I try to explore the symbolic meaning of constructed forms and create a spatial ambiguity, an imaginary space.
As an architectural photographer I also became interested in material. White marble attracts me a lot. It is a precious element for architects and sculptors.
I made the Marble room series in Carrara quarry in Italy, 2011. Many great artists came to choose a piece of cut marble for their masterpiece. Among them were Michelangelo, Louise Bourgoise and Anish Kapoor.
The industrial space with old machines and tools appeared to me as mysterious interior. The lights and tools created an interesting shadow of a man, which was not real…
I studied photography in Belgium at RhoK Academy and Ecole des Arts d’Ixelles.
In 2008 I was honored with first prize of Vitra Belgium at photo competition “How to see” George Nelson.
My photography work has been exhibited in several solo and group exhibitions and published in various magazines, books and web publications.
Some images are part of the permanent collection of Museum of Fine Arts Houston, Rodin Museum Paris, Bibliothèque Nationale de France and private collections.
