In 2014-2016 three grants gave me the opportunity to work on longterm projects: Fund Pascal Decroos for reporting on the textile workers of Cambodia. Fund Filip Decock for documenting the eco-sustainibility of Tonle Sap Lake. And International Development Reporting Grant for documenting the role of wastepickers in recycling plastic into 3D filament.

 

In my approach to the subject I try to be as intuïtive as possible.

 

I am based in Brussels, Belgium.
