The World Photographic Cup is a photographic competition unlike any other, comparable to what the Olympics are in sports. This year is the 6th edition, where 32 countries from 4 continents have handed in 3 photos per category (commercial/digital art illustrative/nature/portrait/reportage/ wedding), taken by several photographers, and aiming to become the best national team.
It was founded in 2013 by the FEP (Federation of European photographers) together with the PPA (Professional photographers of America). Today the UAPP (United Asian professional photographers) and the AIPP (Australian institute of professional photographers) are also taking part.
Last year the winning team was from the US. Even though Belgium has not yet won the cup, we have had several medals over the years. Martin Steenhout (silver in 2014), Koen de Langhe (gold in 2015), Ann Coppens (bronze in 2017), Evi Polak was finalist in 2018.
I am proud and honoured to have been selected as one of the photographers to represent my country in the category ‘digital art’, with this work called “The Game”.
In case you want to see “the Game” in real life, it is now on view in my exhibition “disclosure” in Ampla House Gent, this weekend and the next. And yes, it is also for sale.
Ampla House, Coupure 88, 9000 Gent
Saturday 17th and Sunday 18th of November, from 11am to 6pm
Saturday 24th and Sunday 25th of November, from 11am to 6pm
With the book comes the exhibition. Or is the other way around?
Even though, over the past 4 years, I participated in several exhibitions, it was usually with a limited amount of my works. Disclosure, on the other hand, is a complete overview of al my work taken since graduation, now 4 years ago. I have been evolving -and still am, I hope-, which makes an overview extra interesting.
For this we found a perfect location in Gent, Ampla house, a beautifully restored city palace, which is now used as co-working-space. It is brand new, and was in desperate need of some art! My works fit in perfectly and the location, as well as my works, are worth a visit!
Opening was last Friday, and the first weekend has already finished off with succes. There are 2 more weekends to go, time for you to hop in and have a look. I will be present during all opening hours of the exhibition.
Disclosure @Ampla House, Coupure Rechts 88, 9000 Gent. Saturday the 17th and Sunday 18th of November, from 11am to 6pm Saturday the 24th and Sunday 25th of November, from 11am to 6pm
I have been working on this for a while now, although, it wasn’t me who did the work. Christophe Lambert, who is a great writer, write down my story, in combination with a selection of my photos. It has become a real pearl, a combination of both a pleasant read and an overview of my pictures ánd my career as a photographer.
