#2 The Guardian’s best of photography 2017

Schermafbeelding 2017-12-14 om 08.16.44

I started ‘Bending The Frame‘ to create projects that envision my ideas about photography. Instead of complaining what was wrong or could be better with things, I wanted to create things and see if we could literally bend some frames. The idea for #Slide was to rethink the framework of a slideshow and match up photographers with an amazing body of work to incredible musicians that have the art to improvise and who can have a dialogue with the photographer. The result was then performed live during 3 consecutive evening screenings in Antwerp.
The collaboration between Sohrab Hura, Hannes d’Hoine and Sjoerd Bruil has been more then incredible in every way and travelled around to Berlin, Minnesota, Gent,…
Each different live performance or screening had it’s own feel and magic but London stands out. 3 live performances by Hannes that captivated the audiences, a continuous loop of the piece during the wonderful Peckham 24 photo festival, a party with our own resident dj Faster PussyKat aka Katrijn Sermeus.
Now Sean O’Hagan of The Guardian makes ‘The Lost Head & The Bird’ screening his #2 of the past photography year.
So so proud!! Wow wow wow. Thank you Iona Fergusson and Vivienne Gamble for bringing this amazing piece of Sohrab’s and Hannes to London. It’s been special in every single way imaginable.

Slide #1

I’m very proud to present Slide #1.

With some friends, I’ve founded Bending The Frame vzw, a new non profit organization that will search for new ways and create different platforms to bring great photography out into the world.

For Slide #1, we’ve asked photographers Sébastien Van Malleghem and Eva Wollenberg to make a slideshow presentation of their work and think about the concept slideshow. We match them up with the amazing musicians Aldo Struyf (Creature with the atom Brain, Mark Lanegan Band), Gregory Frateur (Dez Mona) and Roel van Camp (Dez Mona, DAAU) who either created new music especially for the evening or will preform a live soundtrack along the images. A unique experience.

Afterwords and in between performances DJ Faster PussyKat will spin records and make everyone pur on the dance floor

Hope to see you all there in helping me launch this new venture.

Backstage with Skagen

Last week I had so much fun working with the people of SKaGeN, an Antwerp based theatre collective, who are not afraid of experimenting with and/or trying to create different forms of experiencing theatre.

I photographed their play ‘Deur Deur Deur’, a re-staging of the play that they performed 7 years ago. Here are some images I took backstage before and after that performance.
