Luminary Landscape was born out of an intuitive and intimate encounter with the landscape. A landscape shaped by the confrontation of light and the physical materiality of Earth.
The images An Debie creates arise from a desire and fascination to fathom reality. Here a scientist, there a poet. Her source of inspiration are objects in nature, which she dissects in a process to discover the invisible through the visible. Her images zoom in on details and dissect patterns and transparency. This approach often results in tension between reality and abstraction.
She uses almost exclusively analogue processes in which she often manipulates the shooting and/or development process. She allows chance, accepting the loss of control – thus the image is created through experimentation.
An studied photography at the International Center of Photography (ICP) in New York and at the Academy of Fine Arts in Ghent. She also holds a degree in Art History (M.A.) from Ghent University. She teaches photography at Luca School of Arts – Narafi
