Dirk Liviau, born in 1962 and living in Kluisbergen Belgium, started with photography in 1991  at DIART Sint Eloois Vijve.
s a self-made artist in photography I participated in the photographic salons of the WVFD (covenant photographs circles in West Flanders). In 1996 I was recruited by Kordial Kortrijk (one of the leading photo clubs in Belgium during that period).

I received the title "Master for Life" (honoris P. P.) for my many competition performances in Belgium and all over the world.

I was a member of the competition committee of the first digital photo contest in France.

I participated in expositions as Prem Photo in Romania, at the Ashurst Gallery in South Africa , "le club taurin Basque" at Bayonne ( France) ,


I present my latest creations under the name Dreamscapes. In the literature we have magic realism, in painting one speaks of surrealism , in photography some use the term "dreamscape". It is a fusion of images, emotions and atmospheres into an artistic whole. I became acquainted with  this digital art process , thanks to Kamil Vojnar, a Czech artist I met in Arles and Saint Rémi de Provence ( France).

He showed me the art of putting together multiple images into a new surrealistic whole. The result is a dream, a dreamy atmosphere ..... a dreamscape.
