About the photographer

Currently studying photography at the Royal Academy of Fine Arts (KASK) in Ghent, Felien is always looking for new ways to use photography as an art form. When she is not drawing inspiration from other art forms to focus on surrealism, she uses her close surroundings to capture small moments that are rarely seen. She shares some of her work on Instagram.
