I came to Paris in 1993 to try my luck at Sygma Photo Agency as a war photographer. Did some stuff for SIPA, ended up at Wostok Press where I tripped over Thomas Dworzak sleeping under the office table. Rest is history. He became a Magnum photographer and I spent too much time in all the hellholes you could imagine: Bosnia, Rwanda, Iraq, Chechenia trying to change the world. :-) Got almost killed in Bosnia only to see my reportage being cancelled because of another pool picture of Princess of Stephanie. Lost my youth innocence, decided to stop the nonsense and came back to Paris. Worked as a commercial photographer, got a son and changed profession. Became an IT project manager (yes, life is like that sometimes), to feed the family but not the mind. Today, IT project management still pays the bills and allows me to invest in my own photography projects. I guess nothing is ever black and white in life except the pictures I shoot. Went from Paris to Belgium, seperated, spent time chasing my own shadow and had another, lovely son in 2007 with my new partner. I love documentary photography, reportages, discovering new places, traveling and trying to understand how to combine all of that full-time. Still haven’t. But then again, some things should never be figured out. Keeps you alert, on the move and open to new challenges. Have been in Marloth Park, South-Africa for the last 2 weeks and will have to go back to Belgium in two days to take care of business. South-Africa got under my skin though and I plan to come back . A lot to discover, a lot to photograph. I hope this forum will get traction because there is a huge need for a honest, digital nomad’s hang out with real people, real digital nomads. I am amazed how much crap there is on the Internet by people who seem to abuse of the label digital nomad just to get traction on twitter, facebook and instagram.
