History

I am 55-year-old-part time industrial automation engineer living in Belgium that has a second job as a photographer.

I started photographing at the age of 13 and have enjoyed taking photographs all of my life. At a young age, I started working as a lighting designer and operator for a semi-professional modern dance company "Terpsichore". This evolved into a 20-year long collaboration with different dance companies, dancers and gymnasts. Primarily in the context of lighting the performances and sometimes as a photographer of rehearsals and taking pictures for the programs.

When the companies stopped performing, I finally found the time to work with some of the dancers as models for my photographs. This was what I always wanted to do but never found the time for being a lighting designer. However now I could use the experience that I have in lighting dance for making the black and white art pictures that I always dreamt of. This evolved over the last 20 years into black and white nudes with a theater atmosphere using light as I used to do during the many dance performances that I lit.

I hope you will enjoy your visit to my website,

Koen
