David Verberckt was born in 1971 in Brugge, province of West Flanders in the Flemish Region of Belgium. It is currently based in Budapest, Hungary.
During 1990-1997 years David has studied photography at "Le 75" (L'Ecole Supérieure des Arts de l'Image) in Brussels, and has afterwards graduated in Development and Humanitarian Aid at L’Institut Bioforce in Lyon, France.
After exhibiting his first documentary reportages in the early nineties, he 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 European Union.
In early 2013, David left the ordinary offices to devote his professional career fully to photography. He has since been working on several projects and exhibited his work at numerous festivals and programmes worldwide, mainly relating to social documentary issues.
