Who is Inès Bolsius?

"She is passionate about photography, about the image taken at the right moment, about the emotions it can bring. I immortalize places and people that mark me and inspire me. It allows me to open my eyes on a world that I naively see. I had doubts about making it my profession, but with my camera, I feel like I'm in another universe, like I'm me."


Your style?

"Much more attracted to portraiture and nudes. I'm also passionate about fashion photography! I'm also more into black and white. All these elements make me more sensitive and inspire me much more. It's been a few months since I started to find my style in colour."

Best memory?

"The dressing rooms of a fashion show for Brussels Fashion Week. All these photographers running around with their cameras, I felt out of place. It was a very heavy atmosphere but I came to my senses and did what I had always dreamed of doing. I was filled with so much happiness and that's really when I knew I wanted to do this for the rest of my life."

Favorite photo?

"I'm too hard on myself and don't appreciate photos I took the day before that I was proud of. Except for one that represents what I would like to produce again and again in the future. It's from that famous shoot at Fashion Week in Brussels.

And the future?

"I find it very difficult to project myself into the future. We don't know what the future holds. I just hope that my family and I will be happy and healthy, that's what matters most, isn't it?

Your 1st book "Introspection"?

"It allowed me to do more intimate photography and get out of my comfort zone. I had to "bare" myself, understand myself. It was during the first confinement, which I did not experience very well, as many did. Despite the difficulty of creating this book, I loved this adventure."

What about the second?

"We, the youth of today", was close to my heart. I don't think I've ever given so much of myself to a project. It was a cause I wanted to defend, people I wanted to put forward. This book also marked the beginning of a long blank page, as well as a long period of self-examination."


A conclusion?

"I would say I am lucky to have art in my life, it's not the easiest path, but I see it as a gift. I'm proud to be a photographer and I hope I can show the world how I see life, how beautiful it is."
