Fine Art Project
The ARTISTS series offers a unique set of images of contemporary visual artists portrayed in their studios through a pure, respectful and onctuous approach.

With portraits of: Jan Fabre, ​​​​​​​Rinus van de Velde, Anne-Mie Van Kerckhoven, Walter Swennen, Jan De Cock, Arne Quinze, Henk Visch, Paul Gees, Koen Vanmechelen, Koen van den Broek, Luc Deleu, Guillaume Bijl, Michel François, Hans Op de Beeck, Willem Cole, Vincent Geyskens, Frans Gentils, Virginie Bailly, Ronny Delrue, Masato Kobayashi, Thomas Bogaert, Johan Tahon, Robert Devriendt, Peter de Cupere, Willy De Sauter, Royden Rabinowitch, Leo Copers.

"The portraits do a strong job of sharing a hint at the inner selves of the artists; there is a psychological undercurrent running throughout the photographs." 
- LensCulture Portrait Award jury 

The project is ongoing and a book publication is scheduled for 2023.

"Isabelle is not making an oeuvre of portraits that is putting these artists appearance first, she works with them to enhance being proud of artistic maneuvers. It even sparks the curiosity to go and view what these people have accomplished. Because as ever in a good portrait, there is so much more not to see in real life." ...
