Creative street photos by Geert De Taeye, talented 38-year-old photographer and artist currently based in Brussels, Belgium. Geert shoots a lot of dvertising campaigns, portraits, landscapes and movie-inspired pictures. This diversity has been essential for the young photographer to distinguish himself and forge a place within a culture dominated by ‘the image’. Geert’s approach is subtle and clever; he photographs and rearranges what he sees, reinventing and manipulating what is actually taking place at a given moment in time. He combines flawless techniques with the force of persuasion, irony and empathy. The truth is not always apparent and his work never ceases to captivate. His atmospheric photos are the result of a practice in which he manipulates and reinvents his subjects, and thus immerses the truth in a seductive layer of irony and empathy.
Like most things in life, photography is about atmosphere, emotion , special moments. What fascinates me when creating my images is how I get there ; the journey ; the story behind it. The choices I make by selecting the location , the light , the people I work with in my team. It all comes together in one moment , a special moment.
