Frieke fell in love with photography at an early age, and nurtured an interest in lifestyles, sociology and stereotypes while studying photography at Luca school of arts, Brussels. Over the past two decades, Frieke Janssens has built a solid reputation in staged photography. Her work is characterised by precise staging, as well as an impeccable command of technique and a perfect finish. Janssens’ visual language is both surprising and playful and reveals a great sense of humour. Above all, her work often shows tension and an unspoken tragic undercurrent.
