Gilbert Fastenaekens

From October 23rd to December 20th 2003

Close to the German and French traditions of landscape, namely Thomas Ruff, Jean Marc Bustamante and Thibaut Cuisset, the Belgian photographer Gilbert Fastenaekens has been using the “documentary style” half way between the vision of reality and the artistic language it implies. Already well known for its debut in “Nuits” (1980-1987), urban landscape at night, so different from photojournalism overwhelming at the time, he works as a photographer for the French “Direction for geographic space organisation” and wins the Kodak price for photo critic in 1986.
