Biography and Curriculum Vitae

 

Joris Vandecatseye (°1983) is a photographer who lives and works in Ghent, Belgium. In 2005, he graduated at the Royal Academy of Fine Arts (Ghent) and started his photographical journey. This journey can be taken to the letter because he goes places, searching for light, composition and colour that make his pictures work. All his walks and travels are documented in scrapbooks. Today, he has 26 of these books, showing exactly what he's been doing since graduation.
