Publisher Walter Koenig Verlag, 2017
Dirk Braeckman's work brings stillness to today's steady tide of images. Working with analogue photography, he explores the boundaries of his medium and challenges photographic conventions. His chosen subjects are recognizable, yet flirt with representation, abstraction and the reality of what is shown.
Dirk Braeckman creates images with a special charge, which withhold as well as divulge information, giving them the power to hold the viewer's gaze.
Dirk Braeckman represents Belgium at the 57th Venice Biennale.
