About Nick Hannes

After graduating from the Royal Academy of Fine Arts in Ghent (Belgium) in 1997, I worked ten years as a photojournalist, realizing reportages in the Balkans and the Middle East. In 2006 I decided to fully concentrate on long-term documentary projects. In 2009 I published my first book ‘Red Journey’, about transition in the former Soviet Union. In 2011 I made a book about traditions in Belgium. In 2010 I started working on ‘The Continuity of Man’, a longterm documentary project of the Mediterranean region. This book and exhibition was launched at the Museum of Photography in Antwerp (B) in november 2014.

Since 2008 I teach documentary photography at the Academy / The School of Arts in Ghent. I exhibited in FotoMuseum (Antwerp), Bozar Centre for Fine Arts (Brussels), Thessaloniki Biennale for Contemporary Art (GR), Flanders Center (Osaka), Breda Photo (Breda) amongst others.
