I grew up in Ghent, Belgium where my family of entrepreneurial brewers and restaurant owners introduced me to the magic of food and drinks. Soon I began to look beyond the table itself, as vacations throughout Europe opened my eyes to history and archaeology – an interest that quickly bloomed into a passion for ancient civilizations and later became the subject of my PhD. While studying, I realized that photography could actually make visible the sweet and savory textures of past civilizations, and produced the artwork for a historical cookbook titled Smaak! (in English, Taste!). There was no turning back: after a postdoc at Stanford I left academia and embarked on my career as a food photographer. Since then I have worked in-house and as a freelancer with companies like Memphis Meats, Sprig, StarChefs, Zume, Raised Real and Lolli & Pops; and my artwork has been featured in European magazines and public events like Belgium’s Night of History. I now live in Berkeley, CA.
