Born in Oxford, Uk in 1987. Anne-Sophie is a young photographer who works and lives in Brussels, Belgium. She recently finished her MFA in visual arts / photography at the Royal Academy of Fine Arts in Brussels under the direction of Chantal Maes. She received the prize Roger de Conynck/ fondation roi Baudouin in 2013 and got selected laureate of the 'proposition d'artistes 2013' at the Espace photographique Contretype in Brussels.
Photography is an art intrinsically linked to life that relays on experience and experimentation. It works on our unconscious, it inhabits our imaginary and allows us to meet people, make discoveries on others, human being and ourselves. She follows her thoughts and attempts to leave her stream of consciousness flow during the quest of understanding human nature.
The use of medium format has become a systematical choice in her work. A heavy camera on a tripod maintains a particular connection with time and has a sustained presence. The small amount of shots implies a very meticulous method and patience as well as a very precise choice in the framing.
An image appears before words. How could she describe with words what appears in mind beforehand. Around the mark that the visible leaves us alongside with the sensitive comes photographic pictures as self-expressions. She delivers them without falling into pure subjectivity neither in a conception of art understood as a simple reflection or expression of altruism.
