About


I am passionate about photography, both in research and in practice. I am currently living in Antwerp and working on a PhD project at the University of Leuven, Belgium.

AS A PHOTOGRAPHER, I LIKE TO MAKE VISUAL STORIES WITH PHOTOGRAPHS.  

I am still searching for what kind of photography projects suit me best, but I like how photography allows to take things out of their regular context and put them in a context with other images, where it gets an entirely different meaning. You can find my trials and errors on this website.
AS A DOCTORAL RESEARCH STUDENT, I STUDY OUR AESTHETIC REACTIONS TO PHOTOGRAPHY.

Information about this scientific project, alongside a selection of essays  and other output, can be found at the Flat & Framed research website. The project is part of the research lab of Experimental Psychology,  embedded within the GestaltReVision research project at the University of Leuven.
