We would like to start a new initiative. Be curator of the Anamorfose Cahier. Everybody is welcome to do so. Just pick your 20 favorite photos from the website and send us your selection. The first curator is An Defoort. She’s my partner and full time working at Anamorfose. She’s the female touch of Anamorfose. People who visit the London and Paris fairs will know her. I asked her to pick her 20 favorite photos. Some of them I knew to be in the selection. Others where real surprises. I hope you enjoy her selection. Best regards, Xavier Debeerst


It’s always magic to see people make a selection of photos. Sometimes it’s predictable, other times surprising but it always learns you a lot about the person.

AD: From being married to a photography lover for over 15 years ;) Over the last decade I met many photographers, photography dealers and their photographs on various occasions. XD: What’s according to you a good photo? AD: A good photo is a photo that touches me emotionally and that continues to intrigue me even after many years. The technique or photographic process is of minor importance to me. XD: How did you make your selection? AD: I just went through the database and picked the 20 photographs I liked at first sight. I did not check the photographer, nor the price of the photograph. The photographs I chose are photographs I would like to be surrounded by in my home. XD: If you only could select one photo? AD: I would choose Dutron’s rendez-vous. A dark photograph capturing solitude and hope in subtle shades of black.

And as the following are not really photographs as such, I can choose them too ;) · ·

Photogravure Marissiaux with the wonderful light beams entering through the factory windows The autochrome of an interior : I always find it fascinating to get a glimpse of the “color” of the past.


XD: How did you learn to know Photography?
