Born in 1976 - Belgium
The work of the Belgian photographer Klaartje Lambrechts (1976) is characterized by her alluring renderings of human emotions, often woven together into graphic or architectural perspectives. She experiments with different genres, but documentary photography and portraiture stand out the most. Although her visual language evokes a pureness and vulnerability, often it is concealed with cynicism and wit. This tangle of levels is enhanced by the play of light, all captured into one aesthetic composition.
Driven by perfection and due to her ten-year practice in the fashion industry in Antwerp and in Paris, which she completed as commercial director for the famous Belgian fashion house A.F. Vandevorst, Klaartje developed an exquisite vision on aesthetics. In 2008, urged by creativity and the inner sense, she initiated an education in photography at the Royal Academy of Fine Arts in Antwerp to tell her own visual story. In 2012 she decided to dedicate her time entirely to photography.
Despite a late photographic departure, her work is already been nominated for several awards. Recently she was the finalist of the Grand Prix de la Decouverte 2012, category People/Portraits (FR). Earlier this year she was the first selected at the Photofestival Knokke (BE) and was shortlisted in the Sony World Photography Award, category Arts/Culture (UK). In 2011 Klaartje became the winner of the Weekend Knack Award, Food is Fashion (BE).
Her photographs also participated in several exhibitions. To name a few: in 2012 she had her first major solo show with Hospital Series, exposed in the illustrious setting of the Antwerp University Hospital (BE), where the eponymous photo book was also presented. In November 2012 her work will be on show at the NoFound Photo Fair (FR) in Paris during the Mois de la Photo. Earlier 2012 her series Project #1 was included in a group show at the Art Festival in Watou (BE) and in the Somerset House in London (UK). Three selected images of Project #1 were already presented for the first time at the Photo View / Kick off Photofestival Knokke (BE) in 2011.
