SpiegeldA is my Portfolio website and is an Antwerp dialect word for "Mirror you".

Looking for reflections of the world arround me, I gradually try to tell a story with the words that can be found between black and white, to immortalize them on photo paper and / or to share them with you through this website that reflects my growth process as a Photo Art student and photographer.
