▪ At the age of 18, after finishing my secondary education, I began working for the National Bank of Belgium. In 1970 I decided to leave my job at the Bank in order to pursue photography at the Luka School of Arts in Brussels. At the conclusion of my first year at the college, I was invited by August Bal to join his staff as a lecturer. Between 1972 and 1974 I was a guest lecturer at the Dartington College of Arts (UK)
▪ In 1980 I was invited to teach at the HONIM art college in Brussels (later the Luka School of Arts).
