About Harry Fayt
Former studio photographer, Harry Fayt (Liège, Belgium) was at early age fascinated by the beauty of women and the way you can depict them. For years he was mainly a fashion photographer, until a few years ago underwater photography came on his path. In 2011 he decided to change course and to dive into the underwater world. Over the years he developed from being an underwater fashion photographer for various brands to a fine art underwater photographer. Since then, Harry Fayt has been working on his aesthetic research in combination with the theme of water. Harry assumes that what is possible above water can also be realized underwater. The problem he faces in the execution of his ideas is his biggest challenge. A never-ending experiment that makes his photographs evolve in images that become increasingly interesting and fascinating for the viewer. Harry Fayt feels like MacGyver, always exploring and finding solutions for his inexhaustible ideas.
