Qui suis-je ? / About me ?

 

C'est une bonne question ! Mon nom sera inconnu chez beaucoup de visiteurs. Je suis de 1945, et heureux pensionné, passionné de photgraphie depuis plus de 40 ans.

It's a good question ! For many visitors, my name is unknown. Born in 1945, living in Visé, Belgium, I am a happy retired, loving photography since more than 40 years.

Mon approche photographique est très personnelle. J'essaye de transmettre au travers de mes images, les émotions vécues à la prise de vue. Je suis avant tout un photographe d'ambiances.

I am a photograph with very personal and original approach, whose working-method aims at tranferring in my images the feelings I experienced while shooting. I am above all an atmosphere photograph, and I wish to share them with those and the one that look at my pictures.

My atmosphere captures results from a subtle mixture between fuzzy zones and perfectly sharp zones.
