Anton was born in Belgium (1974), obtained a master's degree in Political Science at K.U.Leuven (Belgium), and studied photography at STUK Leuven (Belgium) and Academy of Fine Arts, Hasselt (Belgium). Currently he lives & works in Belgium and Tokyo (Japan). Together with friend and mentor David Alan Harvey he founded BURN Magazine, a platform dedicated to emerging photographers.
Anton expresses the impossibility of understanding the world around him in any way he can. Telling visual stories through images and words, often combined into book, exhibit and design, he continually confronts himself with the limits of his own capabilities, asking more questions than he can possibly answer.
His work has been featured in The Sunday Times Magazine, New York Times, l'Espresso, GEO magazine, TEDx, El Pais, BBC, The Economist, BBC Radio 4, Leica M Magazine, dS Weekblad (De Standaard), Dagens Næringsliv, Cobra.be, De Laatste Show, VOP Taiwan, The Japan Times, ELLE Men, Marie Claire, BURN Magazine, Status Brazil and City to City China, amongst others.
His work has been exhibited in Maastricht (NL), Genk (BE), Rome (IT), Barcelona (ES), Sydney (AUS), Hong Kong (HK), Liège (BE), Montpellier (FR), Genève (CH), Aalst (BE), Hasselt (BE).
He has taught workshops in Berlin, Venice and New York.
Anton is represented by Ingrid Deuss Gallery in Antwerp, Belgium
