Liza François (°1995) is a photographer based in a little village close to Ghent, exploring the vibrant reality of life. Pure and unconditional, giving space and dignity to her subjects, her pictures speak freely and sincere their own language, gradually revealing the unspoken. During her childhood and along her young adolescent years Liza loved to make pictures, but five years ago, after completing her nursing degree, she truly answered the call and embraced photography as her personal way of life.
In 2020, she accomplished her Bachelor degree of Audiovisual Technology Photography with Honor from LUCA School of Arts in Brussels. Her dedication to her craft continued as she earned her Master’s degree in Photography with Great Distinction from The Royal Academy of Fine Arts (KASK) in Ghent in June 2023.

When she’s not making images you can find her serving a good glass of wine at the local wine bar.
