It was a cold day with a little sunshine, but this policewoman looks a little magenta. Should I have another look at the calibration of my new D5 MKIII camera?
Some more publications of my work in the past few days you’ll find here too.
From the archives, on Bilangual schools in Brussels. Yes, the biggest girl in pink, that’s my daughter!
Sometimes I upload my stories to demotix, instead of Corbis. The possibilities and help of the editors at Demotix make it possible to post a better story with the images.Not only the caption but a real headline, etc. Festival of Europe. Funny pic isn’t it?
Of all images sent to all Belgian newspapers only one (De Standaard) chose a picture of mine. It was the picture of two gay men dressed up as female, who I secretely followed when I saw them in despair, running around Kunstberg, citycenter of Brussels. They found a more or less private place in a corridor near central station (where the smell of urine is quite normal) to urinate standing up.
I almost didn’t send this picture, while I thought it was a bit cheap, but when my wife liked it I thought I’ll send it anyway.
Check out my archives if you want to see or buy of all images I did.
Here you’ll find the original and some of my personal favorites:
A great atmosphere at the Pride Gay parade 2013 in Brussels this year.
After one week of conferences, talks and meetings, a day of partying, a rally of gay, lesbians, transgenders and more was organized in Brussels citycenter.
The zombie pictures illustrated to me in the best way what’s meant by this event: Gays aren’t zombies!

Yes I know, it’s a little out of focus, but it’s a nice composition, I thought.
Mama Marie and other volunteers giving asylum-seekers a cup of soup and some bread when they’re thrown out of the asylum bureau taking a lunchbreak.
They all have a number so they don’t loose their place in the queue.
I was doing this last minute assignment for the BDW and never thought it would end up on the cover of the Brussels Daily.
Read it online.
Was last week better?

I just thought it was a good choice of the photo-editor choosing this image for the cover of the Brussels weekly. Ok I’m not objective, while it’s my own picture, for which I had to bike, on a sunday, for a few hours, to spot those musicians somewhere in the woods under Brussels. ( I got a little lost)
But it’s a nice atmosphere, these hiking-shoes, and the dreamy music. Though the leaves made a lot too much noise.
Always happy seeing my images being used wisely, even in the local weekly having a high level of editing, higher than some national papers!
I was phoned by radio FM Brussel. Following a tweet of Liesbeth Bernolet, asking why you should earn to have the latest tickets to the 20 kilometer run of Brussels, I replied:
Niet omdat ik voor een goed doel ren
Niet omdat ik dit zo leuk vind
Niet omdat ik iets wil bewijzen
maar gewoon omdat ik een stok achter de deur moet hebben, net 45 ben geworden, nog nooit zoiets gedaan heb, twee keer in de week rondjes om Flagey te weinig is, en saai, en omdat ik eens iets anders wil doen dan werken en achter een computer zitten en omdat ik van m’n buikje af moet.
And yes, I can run the 20 km of Brussels, and even get trained by a professional. Thanks a lot FM Brussels!
It’s a pity I can’t find the lay out but I’m happy they choose this image. My Raw photography and postproduction isn’t for nothing. His bright blue eyes match the EU background quite good. I ‘give’ my photographs to agency Corbis, hoping editors that are looking for photography just better than the photography of the common agencies (A.P, Reuters, Belga, etc.) find and use it, so my efforts pays off in the end.

For Museum Night Fever BDW (Michaël Bellon) wrote this piece on kids preparing the fancy Brussel Museum Nights.
Photographing printers at work was rather tricky, but with that mirror in the room I found myself a nice angle.

Motorcycles undercover. I shot this series in Amsterdam and Brussels, and you can see them all on over here.
Ik kept it dark and spooky on purpose. Hope you like it!
