After years abroad, Cédric Gerbehaye returned to Belgium and portrayed his homeland with a Leica M6, M240 and M Monochrom: it was the photographer’s quest to rediscover his native Belgium. Gerbehaye’s series reveals the insight he gained into a country defined by political, societal and financial problems – an appraisal that, at the same time, offers a respectful image of the photographer’s fellow countrymen.

While studying journalism, Gerbehaye realized that photography was his particular form of expression. Born in Belgium in 1977, he first travelled to Israel and Palestine in 2002 to document the sense of disappointment and revolt that followed the Oslo Accords. He joined Agence VU’ and started to work in the Democratic Republic of Congo. The photographic essay Congo in Limbo received several international recognitions. He then started to work in South Sudan and charts the birth of the country, and its first setbacks. In 2013 he is invited in residency by the Festival Images Singulières in Sète. With D’entre eux Gerbehaye turned to his homeland Belgium. Four books have appeared to date: Congo in Limbo (2010), Land of Cush (2013), Sète#13 (2013) and D’entre eux(2015).
