Annick Geenen (* 1970 in Leopoldsburg) is a fine art photographer and lecturer at LUCA School of Arts. 
Her oeuvre explores visual storytelling in photography and the relationship between aesthetics, images between narration, fiction, their subjects and how these relate to one another. She is interested in conveying moments that defy our culture of ubiquitous self-awareness. Thematically the work concentrates on our dealing with time, space, the conditions of human perception, knowledge and on the phenomenological depth embodied therein, and disclosed thereby. Working slowly and methodically, Annick Geenen explores the notion of authenticity and what it means to be yourself through her images. Her often explicit references to the point-of-view, the staging and placement of the characters, the relationship of the body to its surroundings,  the delay and disclosure mechanisms question how we experience its long-term sensorial experience, allowing the story to unfold. With it she questions the idea that seeing equals understanding and careful noticing. 
Annick Geenen graduated in 1992 from the Higher Institute for Visual Communication & Industrial design (Genk, BE) with a Master of Fine Arts in Photography. She holds also a MA in Visual Arts from the Media & Design Academie and a Certificate of pedagogical competence from the Flemish Ministry of Education and Training.  Annick Geenen teaches at the academic Bachelor and Master program of Visual Arts at LUCA School of Arts in Belgium since 2004, while continuing her artistic practice. She lives and works in Belgium.
