Yentl Gijbels (1991, Belgium) is a self-taught analog photographer and filmmaker. Her visual language is one of metaphor and aesthetics. The images reflect her inner world and can be compared with Tarot cards.  "When I press the shutter, a shard of reality is isolated and transfered/transformed onto the film. It's like when the Tarot reader draws a card from his/her/their deck. At first you have all these cards, then the reader picks one and  puts it upside down before showing you. Working with film feels kind of the same. The final images always tell me something about my state of mind in the present and sometimes teach me lessons for the future. They are mirrors. The kind of mirrors that you can find on a fair: multifaceted and alienating, joyful and challenging."
