Dirk Braeckman

°1958, Eeklo, Belgium 

The Belgian photographer Dirk Braeckman has a particular way of showing aspects of the every-day reality that surrounds him. His work is dominated by a constant tension between concealment and divulgement. Many think that his black-and-white pictures are melancholic, but the artist himself declares that he ‘uses little light to eliminate as much information as possible and to come to the pure essence of a picture that way’. For Beaufort01 Braeckman photographed the sea from various apartments along the coast.
