Anne Ransquin, photographer of the Caravane Belgian collective left us on August 13, 2013 at the age of 39.
Widely travelled and friend maker, her photographical work was born out of her unfailing thirst for discovery and encounters. During the last two years of her life, marked by death and illness, photography became for her a true way to express her fight for life and her unconditional love for those around her. Her work “collige rosas” give us an intimate and poignant testimony that alludes with humility the difficulties and the hopes of her daily life. Her pictures show us her intense relationship with the world and are, according to her own words, “like stones in your pocket that you scatter along the way or that you preciously keep.”
The courage and the strength of Anne have deeply impacted those close to her, her friends, her family and her partner, photographer Jorge Luis Alvarez Pupo.
