Bieke Depoorter


Bieke Depoorter (b. 1986) took her Master's degree in Photography at the Royal Academy of Fine Arts in Ghent, Belgium, in 2009, then worked mainly on her own projects. For her latest project she traveled through Russia, the U.S. and Egypt, spending nights in the homes of strangers, people she met by chance in the street, taking fleeting and yet poignant snapshots of moments of family intimacy. Following Ou Menya published by Lannoo in 2011, I Am About To Call It a Day, co-published by Edition Patrick Frey and Hannibal, is Depoorter's second artist's book to date. Depoorter has won a number of awards, including the Magnum Expression Award in 2009, and regularly exhibits in Belgium and abroad.
