A month after testing positive for COVID-19, my 12-year-old daughter, Iris, developed long COVID-19 in February 2022. She became very sick, suffering debilitating symptoms, including fatigue, nausea, migraine and neuropathic pains. She could barely walk. She missed friends, she missed school, she missed running, she missed life. It was months before there was an improvement, which came thanks to cold water therapy.
This series aims to raise awareness and show what an invisible disease looks like. To this day, there is no cure for long covid. Iris has not fully recovered yet. Every day is a challenge.
I am a Belgian photographer currently based in Senegal. Although passionate about portraiture, I also work with documentary, fine art and street photography to explore storytelling, shedding light on the complex aspects of life. I have a Masters degree in English and German literature and in literary translation. My work has been awarded various prizes and exhibited in Australia, Belgium, France, Spain, Italy and Myanmar.
