COLORIST OF HISTORICAL PHOTOGRAPHS
I’m living in Belgium. I’ve always been fascinated with the work of the great photographers of the 20th century. When I look at their photos, I wonder what they saw in color while taking the photograph.
One day, I discovered the only American archive FSA where it was possible to use copyright-free high resolution images. A series of photos of Dorothea Lange was included, and this is how it began.
My goal is to find the colors as close as possible to reality. I work with a repository of shades of gray at the base, but I mainly rely on my instincts and my imagination, all the sensations which I put in my work.
