plays a unique role in our world; catching our eye in magazines, advertising
and books and shaping and influencing our culture with its vivid power
to communicate. The power that photography has for me is bringing home
landscapes, objects, characters, experiences and even human emotions,
from distant lands.
My curiosity has led me to travel extensively throughout Europe, North
America and Asia. As a freelance photographer, I have worked for different
magazines and publications covering diverse fields including architecture,
fashion, portraits, theatre, studio work, weddings, children and landscapes.
As a teacher/instructor, I teach young students the "Art of Seeing"
and have led workshops, assisted photographers and attended numerous conferences.
As a practitioner, I am applying my traditional education in photography
to techniques of digital image processing technologies. These technologies
open vistas and possibilities in the photography field from every perspective:
artistic, creative and commercial.
My walks through the world's streets and back alleys have been displayed
at exhibitions and galleries. Books, newspapers and magazines in Belgium,
Holland, Germany, Italy, Switzerland, Canada and the United States have
published my work.
When asked to explain my philosophy, I admit that I strive to bring unity
and peace to the world through my work; honoring the earth that we have,
which is the mother of us all.
