Eric is a Belgian artist born in 1965. He gained a Degree in Photography from INFAC, Brussels in 1987. Since then he has been a fashion photo- grapher working with many of the top houses. Elle, Marie-Claire, L’Oréal, Levi’s, Coca Cola, Virgin, Saab, Delvaux, Lowe Lintas and Ogilvy are some of his clients.
Among other distinctions, his photography for the Saab campaign was awarded the Silver Lion at the Cannes International Advertising Festival.
Eric is set apart from many of his colleagues by his way of shunning technical artifice and working in natural light mostly with Polaroid film. This results in soft, velvety, almost painterly images.
In his artistic works, he captures women’s essence and soul, transcending them.
His work has been exhibited in Belgium, France and Spain.
For “Painters”, Eric collaborates with a different painter for each photograph.
The artist paints the model in their own style, and Eric photographs the result.
In this way, the Painters series represents a fusion of two artistic visions –something that’s not always easy to achieve, yet this series epitomises a sense of cohesion and dynamic synchronicity.
