about us

The future is ours. We have a dream. What’s yours?

The Dreamers is an online interview and photography magazine about people and their dreams. The only thing that is truly universal, boundary crossing and timeless.

The website is a cooperation between photographer Greetje Van Buggenhout and journalist and story teller Thalisa Devos. Colleagues and friends. The Dreamers is a platform of slow journalism brought by a fast (digital) medium. With inspiring, personal stories and analogue photographs of people from all around the world and of diverse creative and cultural background. With one common ground: a dream. On climate, gender equality, art, education, war on poverty, justice, religion, personal style… Or simply to be themselves.

The future is ours. These are our dreams. What’s yours?

Are you too a dreamer and interested in being a member of our international community?                                                                                      We’d love to hear from you.                                                                                      Flick us an email on thalisa@thedreamers.be

Greetje Van Buggenhout

Greetje Van Buggenhout (1978) studeerde fotografie aan de Academie voor Schone Kunsten in Antwerpen. Ze begon haar carrière bij Zone 03, waar ze de kans kreeg om de liefde voor het portret en het verhaal achter de persoon te ontwikkelen tot een eigen stijl. Ondertussen werkt ze voor verschillende media, reclamebureaus, televisie en Plan International.

Greetje houdt van vrijheid, mensen, hun verhalen, hun portret. Toen Thalisa haar het idee voor The Dreamers voorstelde, haalde ze haar oude Hasselblad boven. Om op deze manier een zo puur mogelijk portret te kunnen vastleggen. Ver weg van Photoshop en het snelle ritme van de digitale fotografie.
