Yesterday I had the immense pleasure to be able to work on the set of the new tv series ‘In Vlaamse Velden’ on the first World War or so called Great War. The story is about one family trying to survive World War I and focusses on five family members each living through their own war.
Arriving in Veurne, I was impressed with the set design, rebuilding the battlefield with amazing detail. Immediately I got a little bit intimidated noticing Stephan Vanfleteren, one of my heroes and simply one of the best photographers in the whole world. He is literally the reason I got interested in reading newspapers, when newspaper De Morgen still published full page photo essays of his, of Tim Dirven, etc… It made me want to become a photographer like them as well.
