Bruno De Cock

After his festival participation in 2012 Bruno de Cock comes back to join us at BERLIN FOTOFESTIVAL 2013 again with an iPhone exhibition in the context of the central dispaly of “Berlin Calling” exhibitoions at The Browse Gallery, together with Michael Schulz and a selection of his infamous “Berlinstagram”  project. Bruno will also particiapte as a  speaker and a portfolio reviewer in the Professional Week.

Born and based in Ghent, Belgium, Bruno de Cock has been a documentary photographer since 1994. This expertise has evolved into photo editing as a full time job, starting as freelancer on the photo desk of a local Belgian newspaper and then moving on to the photo department of Médecins Sans Frontières/Doctors without Borders (MSF) in Belgium. After working there for eight years, I became the MSF International Photo Editor, overseeing the organization’s archive and photo production on a global level, and I am the co-author of MSF’s ethical guidelines for ethical photo use and involved in several multimedia projects developed in collaboration with agencies and multimedia producers.

I have also maintained a strong hands-on role in photography, travelling to Africa, Asia and throughout Europe, documenting the work of MSF. In addition, I have been a teacher/instructor, training staff and patients in basic photography in order to provide finished galleries and multi-media projects.

In a different direction, I have always advocated the possibilities inherent to low-tech photography such as phone cameras and Polaroids, successfully selling a series of prints to Belgium galleries and collectors over the past years.
