Paris Paris: oh la la.
The weather was so nice; it felt like springtime in Paris. I had time to take a nice long walk besides the Seine and drink a good glass of red wine in the sun: sometimes live is superb! The relaxing and soothing atmosphere made me totally calm and happy… mmmm, maybe we should move here?  The opening in gallery  Baudoin Lebon was special with a good glass of champagne and of course the French who visited the gallery in their own time (meaning late). As enthousiastic New York is, so reserved is Paris. But when you get compliments they are sincere. A lot of good things happened in Paris and I hope I will be back soon! Take a look at some photos of the opening.






Sooo, there it is: my first opportunity to write on my blog after my exhibitions in New York City and Paris.  NYC left so many impressions and I met a lot of interesting people that I do not know where to start, but I’ll try to.

NEW YORK, NEW YORK!
What impressed me the most about NYC is that you never know what the day brings you. When you think you will hit your bed early, you end up on a ‘special invitation only’ opening with well known people, a lot of press, many many (very thin) models but most important of all: you meet a lot of special people (with the you I mean me of course).
Because I believe that what you see does so much more then words (after all I am a photographer) I included some photos of my exhibition that is still continuing and a link where you can see a clip of the opening shot by the Belgium televisionprogram ‘de Rode Loper’.

The SHOOT: it was exciting, overwhelming, exhausting, spectacular, emotional, but most of all, thé result is magnificent! Thanks to everyone who made this series with me.

At this moment the editing is being done and, every day the editors and me will have a look at the images over and over again and work on it untill it’s perfect!


All the hard work from my team and myself will clymax on next Monday: the shoot! We will shoot at the MIAT: Museum for Industrial Archaeology and Textile  (www.miat.gent.be) in Gent. I think almost everything is arranged, so I will start reading my concept again and again and again… to see if the visualisation is the way it should be.

I would like to thank my team for their hard work in the last weeks, I’m looking forward to the shoot!!!
