Journey of a photographer

Belgian surrealism

Geert De Taeye

I created this cover image for the 2018-2019 program of the cultural houses De MUZE (Meise) and De Zandloper (Wemmel). The image had to represent the spectators experience in a theater. Inspired by Edward Hopper and Magritte, I created a surreal image that stands for the Belgian surreal character.

Brussels Finest

Geert De Taeye

I am working on a series that started through an invitation by BRUZZ weekly magazine. The section in the magazine is called Framed, where they ask a Brussels based photographer to share his/her vision on Brussels.

I chose to photograph Brussels and its influencers, representing a city that has shortness of sunlight. In a typical Brussels landscape or location. The subjects, persons in the picture choose the next person to be photographed. For Bruzz I will make 4 images, 1 image a week, during one month. 

I decided to continue the series till I have a minimum of 20 images. So curious where this will lead me to. From Marc Didden, a director and writer, till.....

CLARITY OF THOUGHT

Geert De Taeye

Just shot the first part of my new personal work in Brussels: "Clarity of thought"

In this project I investigate the search of and the creation (if this would be even possible) of a moment “ the clarity of thought”. A sensation we all try to achieve. In a later stage of life or during our most turbulent years in life. Overwelmed by these .. mostly brief.. moments we try to hang on to them. Imagine if we could create this experience in a physical or alchemic way. It happens in our subconciousness and in complete balance with ourselves. Uncontrolled total peace and clear vision.

We can consider that Clarity of thought is developed via a moment- by- moment process in the midst of thinking. The mystery of the human brain. Some dark force as a substitute for self controle. It is not rocket science...It's more compicated than that. The question is posed to the mind thus evoking a response; causing one to observe ones own thinking processes while taking the time to think and gather information via reflection, upon reflection a visual thought is generated which allows additional thought to come forth compounding on what has been spoken prior; thus each compounded thought brings additional clarity.

As if we are guided by unknown hands by a gathering through a mysterious happening. 

Soon travelling to Java to continue the process. Keep you updated!
