Hi, my name is Laurent De Bonte and I’m a photographer based in Brussels. My first contact with photography started when I was 16. It was my older brother, also a photographer, who inspired me and introduced me to the fascinating world of images. For over 30 years now I’ve been improving my craft and there is nothing else in life I would prefer to do than being a photographer. Yes, I do consider myself lucky. Throughout these years, I’ve tried and tested both digital and analog, with a sincere preference to the rich texture and deepness of black and white analog pictures. My focus is on street photography, landscapes and fine art nudes. Taking photographs is one side of the coin, the other is spending lots of time in the darkroom exploring different techniques of exposure and coming up with creative ways to print.
I created this website because I want to share my work. Hope you enjoy it and thank you for reading this far.
