Stefanie just graduated from LUCA School of Arts, campus C-mine Genk, the same school I went to. I took a look at the students that graduated this year and her work caught my eye. I am very curious to see how her work will evolve in the coming years.

“In the project “META” the limitations of the human mind are questioned by also exceeding photographic limitations. The images aren’t what we used to: they do not represent the reality, they represent everything but the reality – this by experimenting with non-traditional ways to capture light. The images are metaphorical for a search of ‘the incomprehensible’ where the photographer confronts the viewer to think, look and feel differently. The idea goes back to scientific theories and philosophical texts, like the idea of ‘quanta’ as well as the story of ‘Flatland’ where it becomes clear that humans are limited in their intelligence.”
