Guest of the week: Charlotte Boeyden

It took me 20 years to discover the medium of photography. Now, at age 22, it has become the most important part of my life. I was born and raised in Belgium but I am currently living in the Netherlands. Not for long though, because I will start a course in photography in Belgium this September. 

My fascination for natural light is what lead me to photography whilst studying interior architecture. And even now I only photograph under natural lighting settings.
The photographs I take are analog, because I believe in the honesty of this medium. I love being able to capture a moment on film and having something tangible as a result. 

I am mostly inspired by things that are true. The pure and raw beauty of a girl, real emotions, untouched settings. I want to convey the emotion of a certain moment. I don't really like staging things, which is why I never prepare much for a shoot. I let things happen naturally and see what happens. I never strive for perfection in a photo, the beauty of the imperfect is far more interesting to me.
