Te midden van de vaart der dingen neemt Géraldine dapper de tijd. Ze gaat op pad langs gezichten en bergen en levens en bos, en laat ze zichzelf - zorgvuldig - vertellen.

Haar beelden vertragen uw tred zonder dat u daar erg in heeft.
Laat ze u overkomen, en wandel nooit te snel.

(Birgit Mijl)

Géraldine van Wessem (°06/09/1984, Belgium) graduated in 2006 as a Master in English and Dutch philology at the University of Ghent, Belgium. After that she enrolled at the Royal Academy of Fine Arts in Ghent. In September 2010 she obtained the degree of Master in Visual Arts (Photography) with great distinction.
From September to December 2010 Géraldine did an internship at Flaggfabrikken Center for Photography and Contemporary Art in Bergen, Norway. She now lives in Ghent, Belgium, and works as a teacher and freelance photographer.

During her studies, Géraldine definitely built up a preference for portrait and landscape photography. She attempts to record colours, faces, textures, impressions and emotions whilst never losing her aesthetic focus. Either she tries to meticulously create an image around her perception of someone or she tries to capture the beauty she comes across spontaneously.
Every image represents how she internalizes these experiences of beauty.
