Isa Bekaert (1975)

Belgian artist Isa Bekaert is a portrait and lifestyle fine art photographer who lives and got her education in Ghent. Her wonderful artistic vision mainly finds its way in portraits of children and young adults. As an artist, she visualises true emotions in a natural, tranquil and timeless way.

Her work has featured in photography magazines and books. Currently, Isa and her partner are experimenting with early image making techniques. They attended several wet plate workshops in Belgium and The Netherlands. They got truly fascinated by this early photographic process as it beautifully captures the stillness within each person.
