While the coronavirus took over the world, for many time stood still. People were cooped up, the confrontation with death came closer. These still lifes show how the seasons changed, and how political changes also took place on a global level. Carine Van Gerven invites you to look, to dwell on details and to reflect.

Carine Van Gerven (b. 1966) studied art and painting. Connecting people through art and creating projects is one of her goals.
After her graduation, she became an art teacher in a secondary art school in Overpelt, Belgium. As an artist, she organised several projects and participated in many exhibitions in Belgium and France.
Over the years, photography became her language to express herself. She tells today’s stories in a historical outlook. In 2017 she founded the acclaimed photo festival ‘Lens op de Mens’ in Overpelt, where she now is the coordinator and creative lead.
