The 20th anniversary of the museum of contemporary arts S.M.A.K. Ghent in 2019, sparked the idea to revisit and reportray a wide selection of visual artists who were photographed before by Isabelle in the last 20 years. The contemporary approach focuses increasingly on the psychological state of the subjects and tries to capture the strength and/or vulnerability of the portrayed person.

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

"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." ...
