Once upon a time... age of love

The series consisting of photographic prints, which are reproduced and brought together again and again with various analog manipulation techniques (lens front and back intervention, gluing, scraping, printing, painting, etc.), most of which were found images, was completed in 2014.

Warsaw - the war I saw

This series consists of analog photographs taken in Warsaw in the winter of 2019.


Connections is a series of three photos. Our quest to connect/connect with others - and with ourselves - is a comment on our disconnections, ignoring approaches.

Gentle Blues

The "Gentle Blues" photo series was created by reproducing and combining found postcards, posters, and classic pictures with back-lens manipulation techniques.

Pinhole Photography

A selection of photographs I took with 35mm analog pinhole cameras that I made from waste materials such as matchboxes and tin can.


In the series consisting of these two works I made for the 40th-anniversary special exhibition of Gallery De Buck - Gent, I used the hand-coloring technique on monochrome photography, a technique that was used before 1900.

Encounter with a memory - Hand Messages

Found photographs, postcards, and other images were created by manipulating manually using different techniques.


Homage series I dedicated to Inge Panneels after her death.


Plastic lens 35 mm camera and color film.

On the Road

This selection consists of photos taken in different cities, countries and times. There are also those that have been exhibited before and those that are shared here for the first time. All the photos in the series were taken with different machines and 35 mm film.

Poezie Bordeel

A selection of photos taken at the "Poezie Bordeel" event held in Gent Belgium in 2015. The entire selection is 35mm analog film.


A selection of 35 mm colored films shot with different analogue machines. All photos were taken in Oostende Belgium.

Found and Told

I scanned the dia positives that came out of the box that I bought years ago while visiting the flea market, and years later when I found them at home. There was no information about who the attractors or the first owners were.

Spoilage occurred due to long periods of stay in unsuitable storage conditions, and some even had small insect corpses. I also share with you my respect for her beauty without any digital or manual intervention!
