No, no… Luc d’Haegeleer hasn’t got “a stick falling out of his bundle”, an expression used by my godmother from the Ardennes to denote a quirky character. He’s an artist who loves, more than anything, photography, the forest, its trees, his kids and his wife Elisabeth. And when it comes to teaching you view camera techniques or serigraphy, his talent is matched only by his patience. In Japan, he would have long ago been appointed ‘Living National Treasure’.

Non non, Luc d’Haegeleer n’a pas “un bois hors de son fagot”, expression de ma marraine ardennaise pour désigner un original. C’est un artiste qui aime avant tout la photographie, la forêt, les arbres, ses enfants et son épouse Elisabeth. Et lorsqu’il s’agit de vous enseigner la pratique de la chambre technique ou de la sérigraphie, son talent n’a d’égal que sa patience. Au Japon, on l’aurait depuis belle lurette nommé “trésor national vivant“.
