MARNIX DE PAEPE
Marnix de Paepe is a Fleming who was born and raised in the city of Ghent. Originally he was a model himself, but he found out that his true passion was not in posing, but in the camera work itself. He decided to follow this passion and so Marnix de Paepe became a photographer by teaching himself out of books and by looking at the great masters. One of them, Helmut Newton, would always be his great example. He worked for several large companies and brands, until he chose to make the switch from commercial photography to art photography.
