When personnal family history meets fiction


V.D.’s integration of personal, contextual and fictional perspectives, combined with the nature of his physical and intimate exploration, was producing a vivid and lasting impression of the imaginative confusion that is inherent in any thought, recollection or projection.


In the Beyond History book and other previous (collective) projects V.D. used various documents (pictures, pages from “fake” diaries, letters, short stories, poems,...) in a way that creates a fictionalized autobiography the reader could relate to her/his own life and memory. V.D. named this process : “poetic documentary”.


In 2009 and 2010, V.D. made a new "family experience" in Nepal and discovered meditation and Buddhism which completely transformed the way he deals with life and art/documentary practice. He is now working on a new book of texts and contemplative photographs from Nepal and India, focusing on the silence and the colors of a very intimate self-conscious moment and the intense discovery of a new light in Nepal.


A critically acclaimed photographer


V.D. has received the Memorial Giacomelli Prize 2002 (Italy), the Jean Salgaro Prize at the 14th National Open Photography Prize (Photography Museum in Charleroi, Belgium) and the Vocational Bursary (Belgium) in 2003. He was one of the Discoveries of the Meeting Place in Fotofest Houston 2006.


Beyond History (Havana 1998 – 2006) was nominated as a finalist for the Best Book of the year in RIP Arles 2009 ! The project was exhibited in Mexico (Centro de la Imagen), Paris, Lyon (Septembre de la Photographie). Houston (Fotofest 2008), and many other places.


V.D. has contributed to various magazines such as Purple Journal, Pavilion, CODE, Amica, Trace, Pig, nofound, Pozytyw and View, and he loves to work with the fashion designer Valeria Siniouchkina (Girls from Omsk).


He was a member of the Belgian collective BlowUp.
