Born and based in Ghent, Belgium, I have been a documentary photographer since 1994. This expertise has evolved into photo editing as a full time job, starting as freelancer on the photo desk of a local Belgian newspaper and then moving on to commissioning photo editor for Médecins Sans Frontières/Doctors without Borders (MSF) in Brussels, Belgium.
Currently working as International Photo Editor for MSF’s International Office, managing the organisation’s photo and video archive and act as photo advisor for the MSF movement. I am the co-author of MSF’s ethical guidelines for ethical photo use and have been involved in several multimedia projects developed in collaboration with photo agencies and multimedia producers.
