Bieke Depoorter received her master’s degree in photography from the Royal Academy of Fine Arts in Ghent in 2009. She is currently working on independent projects. In search of family intimacy, she spends the night at people’s houses. In 2009, she travelled through Russia for her series ‘Ou Menya’ and currently she is working on 'I am about to call it a day', a similar project in the United States. Last year, her first book was published. Formerly a member of the Paris-based photo agency/collective Tendance Floue, Depoorter is currently a nominee of Magnum Photos.
