Between word and image, Laurent Dombrowicz chose to not choose. Since the beginning of the nineties,
he uses his eye and his verb in challenging editorial collaborations.
From his cinema studies, he kept the visual culture and a non-necessarily linear sense of story-telling.
From his native Belgium, a willingly distanced look on the ones who make the fashion. Therefore, trends become his when he puts into perspective different creative subjects: fine arts and applied arts, fashion and beauty, design and architecture, etc. This multiform expertise supports designers and creatives concerned to be in tune with their time.
