This week I’ve had the pleasure to work with SKaGeN once more and let me tell you …  they are working on a little gem that will be premiering tomorrow night at de Studio.

The play is based on the documentary work of Magnum photographer Raymond Depardon and Clara Van den Broek, Valentijn Dhaenens and Korneel Hamers play15 characters passing by in the basement of a courthouse on new year’s eve.

From the 23th of April until the 2nd of May in De Studio, Antwerpen and this summer in Edinburg, Scotland. Check them out!

25 years Stijn Meuris

Today I read that musician Stijn Meuris will celebrate 25 years of making music today.

I went back to my archive, as I photographed him in my first project ever, ‘Close & Personal’, a series of portraits of theatre makers and musicians. The whole concept of the project was that they were allowed to choose the location in which I would photograph them. The only demand I had was that it needed to be of personal meaning to them. In that way they could decide themselves how far or how close they would allow me during the session.

Stijn chose the fairground in Antwerp during the day when it is closed as it inspires him to walk around there, gives him a feel of the life of the people working at the fairground, tickling his imagination.

In the series I photographed more musicians and I still love these images to this day. It literally meant the start of my adventure back into the world of photography, which was halted for years after my father passed away. Music and theatre were my escape and through that I was able to slowly reconnect with my passion for photography and literally find myself again.

Here’s 3 more images of Tine Reymer, Tom Pintens and the Dewaele brothers of Soulwax and too many dj’s.

Happy birthday la fille d’O

12 years ago today, Murielle Scherre started up her lingerie brand ‘la fille d’O’.
She started designing lingerie, firstly for herself, refusing compromise between a perfect fit and beautiful esthetics.

In those 12 years la fille d’O not only makes avant-garde lingerie and swimwear, but promotes a healthy image of women by using real, beautiful women to model the lingerie at their shows.

This was one of the reasons why in 2008 I asked Murielle to photograph her Devilles Harem Girls.
Dressed in her lingerie, they perform burlesque shows at parties and events, and carry a sense of femininity and fun.
Happy birthday la fille d’O!

Imagedesk.be makes a limited edition button postcard as a perk to go along with their monthly newsletter. This Month, they used my image of the Afghan juggling girl.
