Joran Pollet (1993) graduated from Sint-Lucas Ghent in 2012 and then followed photography for a year (Narafi Brussels). However, it is the one-year course in decorative ironwork (GOCA Ghent) that forms the crucial stepping stone in his artistic development towards what he creates today. At that time Joran is 23 years old. Joran Pollet is a man of few words. His images are all the more powerful.
