Marc VAN DEUN  -  About



Ik  woon in een banaal provincienest in de Antwerpse Kempen.
Vrijetijdsfotograaf in hart en nieren.
Vond in vader (Jos Van Deun, MFIAP-titularis in 1991) een uitstekend leermeester.  Ik heb ook fotografie in Technicum Antwerpen gevolgd.
Mijn voorkeur gaat uit naar zwartwitfotografie.  Waar ik vroeger zwartwit én kleur eigenhandig in de doka afwerkte, gebeurt alles vanaf 2006 met de PC annex fotoprinter.  Sedert jaren ben ik actief in de internationale fotowedstrijden.
Na het einde, mei 1998, van mijn gerenommeerde club Foto-Diagroep Kempen en een korte sabbatperiode heb ik meer afstand van het traditioneel fotoclubwereldje genomen.  Sedertdien werk ik solo onder de clubnaam Pro Forma.   Alleen is toch maar alleen;  gelijkgezinden zijn altijd vrijblijvend welkom maar die lijken bijzonder schaars te zijn.

Sedert 2020  lid bij de Facebookgroep  Zwart wit fotografie Belgium.  

 

I live in a provincial town in the environment of Antwerp, Belgium.

My father (Jos Van Deun, MFIAP in 1991) was a perfect master in photography.

I shoot just for fun and take part in photocontests.  In the past I was member of a photoclub but I have chosen to practice solo since 1999.
I always prefered monochrome prints; my colour prints too are handmade by myself.  Since 2006 I finish all by PC and a photoprinter.

FIAP is founded in 1950 by Belgian Dr. Maurice Van de Wijer and is a worldwide organisation to promote photography.  ​Their website: www.fiap.net

For the non-initiated, in the popular language, you can compare the AFIAP distinction to a certificate of qualification, the EFIAP distinction to a certificate of mastery and the MFIAP distinction to the doctorate.

MFIAP, introduced in 1980, is the highest award.

In 1992 an addendum on 4 new EFIAP levels (Bronze, Silver, Gold and Platinum) is achieved.

Since 2016 3 levels "Diamond" after EFIAP/p are introduced.

EFIAP/g is a decent level.

Up to  December 2020 I could monitor authors with EFIAP/g resident in Argentina (1), Australia (2), Belgium (7), the Netherlands (3),  Germany (2), Austria (1), Hungary (2), Croatia (1),  Poland (1), Romania (3), Ukraine (1), Serbia (2), Slovenia (3), Slovakia (1), Kazakhstan (1), Greece (3), Italy (11), Cyprus (1),  Algeria (1),  Ireland (1), Nothern Ireland (1), Scotland (1), Wales (1), U.K. (22),  Singapore (1), Israel (1), India (1), Macao (2), Norway (5), Denmark (3), Sweden (2), Finland(3), Iran (1), Bahrain (1), Saudi Arabia (1), United Arab Emirates (1), Vietnam (1) , South Korea (1) and USA (1).
