Faustinus Deraet (b. Antwerp, Belgium) is an Austin based photographer, who grew up in Mexico City. He obtained a Bachelor’s in Computer Systems from the Universidad Iberoamericana; and, after working for seven years at IBM, he decided to pursue his passion for photography. He returned to school to earn a Bachelor’s Degree in Photography at Escuela Activa de Fotografia. He then opened and ran a successful photo studio, La Vida Privada (The Private Life) where for several years he photographed top Latin American celebrities. He has been honored to work with: Andrew Hinman Arquitecture, Iron Thread Design, Keller Williams, Nside magazine, Nui Organics, Remax, Think Street, Tribeza, and Univision, among others.
In reference to the saying “a picture is worth a thousand words”, Deraet states:
A picture is also worth a thousand feelings and a thousand memories. Not only because they are my photos, but because they reflect what I felt, and what I saw. What I thought was a simple and ordinary photographic moment became a particular event in my mind, in my soul, in my life….the photographed object or situation spoke to me and made an unconscious connection. It is not until I see the image that my internal dialogue starts to talk and to realize that the taken photograph has a deeper meaning that the image by itself.
