The artist

The artist Reginald Van de Velde was born in Belgium in 1975. His work continuously examines the unknown and the invisible. In exploring far-flung spaces, he has developed a perspective that captures a sense of splendour that has yet to be disturbed by the turbulence of modern society. Reginal Van de Velde is a vagabond, the chronicler of a forgotten magnificence. His photographs, characterised by Lonely Planet as “striking images of long-forgotten structures”, have regularly been shown internationally at the Art & Science Museum (Singapore), the Backlight Photo Festival (Finland), the New York Photo Festival (United States), Somerset House (England) and the Cannes Lions International Festival (France) among others. His work has otherwise received a number of awards, notably at the Siena International Photography Awards (Italy), the Moscow International Foto Awards (Russia) and the Seoul International Photography Festival (South Korea).  ...

About the artwork

On the subject of his work, LensCulture has affirmed that ?these are the photos of a professional at the peak of his artistic practice? and the BBC has said they constitute ?a grand tour of the interiors of another world?. Reginald Van de Velde is a hunter in search of moments of perfect invisibility and stillness, audibly more silent than the deafening humanity that surrounds us and which seems preoccupied with other realities. The images he captures during his explorations are meant to represent a parallel world. He explores abandoned places that escape our notice, regardless of the difficulty of reaching them, and reveals surprising images of them. Hospitals, monasteries, prisons, train stations: these and other impressive structures that he glorifies now belong to the past. With Letters Denied, created in 2015 in a former asylum in Italy, Reginald Van de Velde plays on symmetry and framing, always seeking the freshness of a new sight. It used to be common practice to suppress any form of communication between patients and their loved ones. Thus incoming letters were confiscated and outgoing ones never left the hospital. The memories evoked by these letters have disappeared, written with words that were never read.

DAMIEN DUFRESNE

As Damien Dufresne says himself: "I let my hands do the talking". His approach is totally new in that it's at the crossroads of makeup, body art, artistic direction and photography. The resulting complexity, technicality and beauty are impressive. Damien Dufresne, a make-up arti...
