In his brand new book Rencontre, photographer Henk van Cauwenbergh introduces us to the marvellous worlds of torero Jean-Baptiste Jalabert (F) and prima ballerina Francesca Dolci (I). Public’s favourite ‘Juan Bautista’, born in Arles, France, and ballet dancer Francesca Dolci, a flamboyant member of Les Ballets de Monte Carlo are the representatives par excellence of a world in which sports and art seamlessly melt together. Watch both top athletes/performers during their daily preparations, become a privileged witness of the particular rituals preceding each performance and be a spectator of a dazzling sham fight at the Mediterranean!
Henk van Cauwenbergh (°1958) studied press and communication at the Brussels University and completed his studies in Paris at the Ecole des Beaux-Arts.

Two years later, Van Cauwenbergh opened The Loft Fashion Factory, his day light studio in Antwerp. Ever since, he is an internationally renowned portrait and fashion photographer. In 2006, Henk Van Cauwenbergh published his first book, Le Matin, in which he portrays 100 women of 19 different nationalities during their morning ritual.
