« To photograph: it is to put on the same line of sight the head, the eye and the heart.” Henri Cartier-Bresson (1908-2004) Broadly self-taught — after rudiments acquired from my father — I like to seize all moments, exercising my eye and mind to capture those fleeting instants of light and time, which make a photograph. To photograph, keeping an amused eye on the world around us, and (re)find beauty in all things. I gained valuable experience in press coverages and events while working for Belga Agency (belga.be) and Demotix (demotix.com) I see photography as a gateway to reach out to people, meet them and approach their culture. If I have experienced with different styles of photography, the one that attracts me the most is documentary: social, close to people, be it at home, or around the world. I am currently based in the Gorges du Verdon, South France and working on various personal projects. Also available for assignments.

Zinneke Parade - Brussels

Published May 20th, 2012

Over a two-year period, Zinneke builds intense collaborations between residents, organisations, collectives, schools and artists from different neighbourhoods of Brussels and beyond. It’s a social and artistic project where people develop their creativity and explore imagination with others.

Zinneke is a participatory creation, an open space for everyone to experiment with cooperative living in the 21st century city, a city inhabited by Zinnekes proud of their mixed roots. Above all, it’s a fantastic celebration in the city, unique and 100% human - without amplification or motors.

Why “Zinneke”?

Zinneke is the name Brussels people give to the small Senne/Zenne river that circles Brussels, protecting it against flooding. Zinneke is also used to refer to a stray dog or mutt… some of which end up in the river. And so we get Zinneke: meaning one of multiple origin and symbol of the cosmopolitan and multicultural nature of Brussels.
