Hi! I am Ann Cools, a curious photographer and writer from Belgium. I've cared for living beings and nature for as long as I can remember. From nursing a fly and staring at lightning as a child to hiking mountains and freediving with orcas. I've always been drawn to exploring the unfamiliar, the majestic. And somewhere along the way, I picked up a camera and a pen.
It's no wonder that the natural world and our relationship with it is at the heart of my creative work. My aim is to spark a sense of wonder and curiosity, to revive the connection with nature and with each other. Because the stories we tell ourselves have a fundamental role in how we interact with the world around us.
