Sebastian Steveniers

Photographer

I'm Sebastian Steveniers, 37-year-old Belgium Documentary photographer, who works for the Belgian newspaper De Standaard as a photojournalist, besides that I work on different long term projects. I started off with photography at a late age, because I have a history of pro-basketball player (my father is a Belgian basketball legend). I decided to go back and study after I quit basketball. I graduated at the Royal Academy of Fine Arts(KASK) in Ghent where I got my bachelor in Photography. I have an undeniable curiosity and hunger for both small and large, well-known and less well-known stories. I use my camera as a key to enter a world or to make any contact. It gives me a fly on the wall feeling, with which I can experience a tranche de vie for a while. I always try to approach my subject as objectively as possible and let my eye do the work. Photography helps me to understand certain facets of life in a better way. I've always been attracted to uncommon subjects and stories, which aren't mainstream and easy to approach.
