A while ago, a girl came to me and to me and asked if I'd like to model for her, while giving me her business card. I didn't knew her but I recognised her face (she's also studying arts like me). Of course I said yes, who wouldn't? ;) I was quit flattered actually! And in the beginning of December it finally happened. It was quit interesting actually to talk with her, and hear her visions about photography, and her work. It appeared that we shared the same opinion about 'recent photography', or what the owners call photography. And talking to her opened my view on photography completely! She's very inspiring.
She wanted a picture of me for her series of Look at me / don't look at me. Based on the idea of reflecting her characteristics on people she barely or doesn't know. After that she took another extra picture.
You'll understand that I had to google her afterwards, I was really curious about this girl! And I did found some interesting facts. She won 'De kunstbende', that's a big art competition for youth here in Belgium. She has exposed in the FOMU, photography museum of Antwerp(!). And her pictures will be shown in the book 'If you leave'. That was an online, international contest by the Belgian Laurence von Thomas. He selected the best picture from all over the world, and only one Belgian photographer was good enough, just her. (En voor de Belgen onder jullie, ze stond deze zomer ook in Focus Knack)

Those who've read all those text are probably curious about her. :) Well, her name is Stine Sampers, and believe me, she's going to be big! Check stinesampers.com or
