Born in 1979 in Belgium, Harry Fayt has a revelation at 15 years old looking through fashion magazines. As many of the teenagers, he’s fascinate by models but photographers who sublime them with fantastic photographs fascinate him as much. That’s where starts his passion for fashion photography.
It’s around 16, dreaming about photographing great models that he starts a photography degree in Namur. Once he got his degree, not very self confident enough yet, he’s shooting live music performance through Europe for the musical press.
In 2006 Harry Fayt opens his first studio in Liège. Three years later he invests in underwater photographic equipments and starts shooting babies underwater but quickly after testing with friends the good result take him back to fashion photography, underwater.
However, his curiosity gets him to settle down in New York to open a new studio. Reaching the success after only 7 months, he headed back to Belgium to take advantage of an opportunity.
Once back, in parallel with his fashion and underwater portraits, he starts a personal project which brings him back to essential, “the female figure” in it’s purest form, the nude.
Step by step, his work evolves and finds itself a new audience; the art world of
galleries, collectors. If Harry Fayt’s sub aquatic nudes attract a very special attention due to their originality and their uniquness, his underwater scenes and portraits started lately get beyond that and bring him to sign with the young but nevertheless fabulous Macadam Gallery in Brussels in June 2014.
With his unique style, Harry Fayt has attracted major magazines through the world; China, Switzerland, UK, Belgium, Germany, The Netherlands, Armenia, etc, and tons of blogs through the world bringing brands such as Wacoal, Samsonite or Didier Parakian to trust his underwater vision for their imagery.
Beside is nude artwork, Harry Fayt never stop experimenting and is now working on portraying artists and iconic, surealist images as he started with “The Flood” or the very succesfull “La Fille au Poisson Rouge”.
