2010 - 2012
Already ten years! A double anniversary (my ten years of career and my fiftieth birthday) celebrated with a solo exhibition at the Cultural Center of Uccle, the Brussels district where I was born. A large retrospective is also organized at the museum gallery of the Banque Internationale à Luxembourg, bringing together older and recent work and demonstrating the aesthetic evolution of my œuvre. Work continues. The format of my photographs becomes more majestic and the images gradually surpass the constraints of their usual format. I am invited to mount a monumental installation, Métamorphosis, at the headquarters of the BKCP in Brussels.
A collector puts one of my prints up for sale at Phillips in London; the result exceeds my expectations and sets my "quotation" on the art market. The documentary Murmures de Lumières is made by a young team of filmmakers who follow my work during the course of one year.
