David Verberckt is an independent reportage photographer currently living in Budapest, Hungary. He has studied photography at “le 75” in Brussels between 1990 and 1993 and afterwards pursued studies in International Development at Bioforce in France. After exhibiting his first documentary reportages in the early nineties, David has turned to the aid agencies and has spent twenty years working worldwide in humanitarian emergency and development with Médecins Sans Frontières and later the EU.
In early 2013, David left the international organizations to work as a professional photographer, full-time. His interest is to document and work close with people whose destinies are marred by social and political injustices, often living in deprived societies affected by latent or bygone conflicts.https://www.davidverberckt.com/

Recently, he is working on subjects depicting and documenting statelessness of Rohingya.
David is a national of Belgium, born in 1971.
