 About me

(c) Kristin Van den Eede

I was born in Belgium, in 1983. My photography passion started about thirty years later. Although I started as an autodidact, I’m now studying photography at the St. Lucas Academy in Ghent (Belgium), where I live. I try to combine my job as a secondary school teacher with street photography as best as I can.

The scientist in me believed that by taking photos I was able to study human patterns and behaviour. The storyteller and artist in me now knows that by stealing parts from everyday life, I create a new reality. The explorer in me is happy that photography also gets me to see the world, together with my partner in art and life, Kristin Van den Eede.
