He who has a wonderful eye for a picture
My name is Antoine Beau Man, I’m Dutch and my New Media Production Company ‘New Born UFOs’ is located in Antwerp, Belgium. The ‘New Born UFOs’ studio itself is both the place where I work as to where I live.
The Brand ‘New Born UFOs’ was founded in January 2012 and sprung from personal need and curiosity.
My biggest life goal is having a good time and that’s why I am deadly serious about making fun and doing what I like; making photos / videos / art / working on prints for home textiles / working on the name, logo, and concept of a new firm / working on prints for fashion or inventing something (from a dish in the kitchen to the concept of a high electronic gadget). As long as I find joy in it, the outcome of the product is sealed in quality !
As a photographer, I photograph people who I meet in daily life. Most of the time, people who I have never seen before. I ask them if we can do an instant Photoshoot. No extra Make-up, no changing of clothes. Just the person how she or he is. In her/his habitat.
On the other hand, I photograph people who I know very well (friends and relatives).
Everyone can be a model.
Show me who you are, if you dare !
I was born in the late sixties, just before ‘The Summer Of Love’ made its appearance.
My parents had an atelier where they produced coats for Dutch Fashion Designer Edgar Vos and fashion retailer C&A. My mother always made sure I and my little sister looked sharp.
As a youngster, I could spend hours and hours drawing.
Uncles/aunts and friends who visited the house told me to become an architect or cartoonist.
The first encounter with style was through music videos from the 70s and 80s.
Punk, Glamrock, New Romantic, New Wave .. it was a marvelous time with outrageous styles.
In the late eighties, I bought my first SLR camera. Mainly to take pictures of my Gothic and New Wave friends.
