Fleur Debruyne photographer

portrait photographer, children's photographer, baby photographer, wedding photographer

My souls are well worn after walking many a path from top fashion stylist to homeless mother.  My pictures stem forth from being me; an immigrant, a woman, a survivor, a pilgrim, an oddball.  My own diverse life experience helps me see people and respect each personal journey. 

 

I'm a trained artist whose medium is currently light and time. I am constantly curious and work through observation rather than construction; I don't make images, I tend to find them instead.  nothing is contrived.  These are real pictures of real moments that I chose to witness in media res.  I hope this deliberate vulnerability allows the viewer a deeper access to narratives.

People are often surprised that I can produce the work I do with a basic DSLR, but my camera is just a tool, a possibility, not a fetish.  The most important piece of kit is always the eye.
