Jef Van den Bossche

Jef Van den Bossche (1993) is a Belgian photographer working and living in Brussels. In 2021 he received his Master’s in Photography at the Royal Academy of Fine Arts in Ghent. With documentary photography being his main focus, Jef has had the opportunity to apply his practice as an intern photo editor and photographer at one of Belgium’s leading newspapers, De Standaard. While he is currently working as an interior and architectural photographer, he maintains a diverse personal practice, having documented communal spaces emptied by the pandemic and spent two years portraying Belgium’s vanishing café culture.
