Yesterday I had the honor to be part of ‘Future Archive‘, an innovative project at Biennale Interieur curated by BaronessO. A selection of inspiring objects and furniture were selected to create a unique visual installation. I worked on a series of abstract compositions, determined by the strong shapes of the objects. Planes, lines and curves were the basic elements to build this series. By shooting the settings from top, and using square view frames, the images became more abstract and universal. The soft and often complementary colors were used like it were paintings.
It was an amazing experience to style and shoot this images in the environment of the Biennale Interieur. Improvisation (I didn’t know which objects to expect) and interaction (instant feedback of the visitors hanging around) were key elements of the day. Thanks Baroness O. and Biennale Interieur for the opportunity and making this possible!
Also a special thank you to Julie from granola brand Floom, to add the surprising element of food into the project!

Biennale Interieur is celebrating their 25th silver edition from 14 to 23 October in Kortijk Xpo. Baroness O. created a unique and interactive project: the ‘Future Archive‘, a display of new objects and reigning trends, the most innovative furniture and accessories that every visitor should remember. A group of creatives is invited to create a visual installation with the pieces on show. I’m so happy to announce The Fresh Light is one of them! On Monday 17th October I will take over the Archive to create a series of inspiring captures. Floom will add the surprising element of food into the project. You are welcome to visit us and have a look at our creative process (Hal 4, booth 436) or you can find the result later online…
This summer season I had the pleasure to photograph a series of christening parties. I loved to meet all the lovely families, and being part of their special day, celebrating their little ones. Capturing the joy and happiness of these moments gives me a warm feeling. After editing the photographs, I love to put them together in a book. I believe that’s the best way to keep your memories, and it’s so much more fun to turn the page of an album, then to click on a screen. Don’t you think so? I prefer premium quality albums with uncoated paper, and a linen cover with dust jacket.
This book illustrates the wonderful garden party to celebrate the christening of baby girl Charlotte, and her sister Juliette’s 3rd birthday. It was colorful feast, with smiling faces, beautiful dresses, fresh flowers, banners and balloons, tasty food, sparking wine and fresh lemonades. For the kids there was a huge birthday cake, homemade popcorn, a piñata, and a cute retro carousel to make it an unforgettable day! Sarah Van Hove from Sourire was taking care of the party organization, and Nathalie (owner of the beautiful interior shop Perfect Living) was the warmest host. She both did a great job!
Excited news! From next week I will share my passion for interior, design and beautiful objects at the inspiration page of VTwonen! Curious? Follow me here!
