Yves De Brabander was born in 1976 in Blankenberge, a village on the belgian sea-side, but he moved to Antwerp, the coolest city of Belgium, and he still lives there. He graduated (cum laude) in photography at the KoG Hogheschool. His work draws a direct inspiration from ‘80s culture: trashy, funky, dreamy, kinky are his key-words. Now he works for fashion as well as for personal projects (e.g. “Ecce Homo”, an art/photography project for the “Culture for Tolerance Festival” in Cracow). His highlights include photos of people like Jane Birkin and Vive la Fete.
