Willy Vanderperre_London

The moment I first heard about the exhibition Willy Vanderperre ‘prints, film, posters and more‘ was holding in London, I knew I had to go and see it. I know Vanderperre’s work since I started my study photography years ago and I always love the way he looked at images, especially when he started working with stylist Olivier Rizzo. Two Belgian fashion pro’s who, years later, made it to the absolute top, without losing their naturel and edge. Willy is a longtime collaborator and friend of Raf Simons, shot everyone from A$AP Rocky and Millie Bobby Brown, to Harry Styles and the Kardashian-Jenners, and made campaigns for brands like Calvin Klein, Prada and Jil Sander.

Closing day of Damien Hirst London-a life inspiration day

London. Saturday 8th of October 2012. The last days of the substantial Damien Hirst exhibition we absolutely didn’t want to miss. We waited too long, and before you know, it is closing weekend…. So we booked some (too expensive) Eurostar tickets, and headed for the UK. As for Iman it was his first time in London, he was totally excited, even we only stayed the day.
