Sybren Vanoverberghe is a young Belgian photographer.

He searches for elements of myths, nature and heritage both within ordinary sites as in places of historical importance. By what process do we attach meaning to these locations? His practice deconstructs sites and brings together icons to form a new unity of the present. »

In 2018, she self-publishes her first photobook "Personal Collection", and in 2021, German publisher Dienacht Publishing released "Come Closer", a series dedicated to her love interest and partner of four years.
From the Dienacht Publishing website :
" Ever since I started photographing I focused on people who were closest to me. The ones that I've known for a long time or the ones that I feel drawn to. When we grow older our relationships with the people around us evolve. Somehow I feel the need to hold on to this by making images. Already now when I look back at all the pictures I’ve taken, it feels like a family album where everyone, even myself, changes every day.
I take a lot of pictures. Every series I've made is built around a great deal of images. This is a certain obsessive way of working I have always loved. "
