IL by Jurgen Rogiers
Jurgen Rogiers is a talented Belgian photographer with seaside roots. He started out with album covers, shooting amongst others David Byrne, Erykah Badu, Belgian band Zap Mama and The Roots whilst he lives in New York.
We're very glad he's been back in Belgium for a few years now. He's been working for several fashion brands, in the advertising industry and he's one of the regular photographers at de Standaard Magazine, the weekly magazine of Belgian quality paper De Standaard. He's also an expert in people & portrait photography, fashion designer Walter Van Beirendonck, ex-Belgian Prime Minister Guy Verhofstadt, Deus lead singer Tom Barman, they have all been in front of Jurgen's lense.
His latest work is a series of photographs for Belgian jewellery designer Isabelle Lenfant. The result is a stunning photo shoot with former Belgian athlete (and now ELLE journalist) Elodie Ouedraogo. Check the series out yourself. We can't find enough words to explain how powerful the photographs are. Wild and sensual. Beauty and depth.
