Dirk Braeckman

b. 1958, Belgium

Dirk Braeckman began his career as a (self) portrait photographer, but later consciously turned away from portrait photography. He finds the subjects for his photographic works in his immediate environment and he has a preference for places or spaces, particularly interiors. He investigates effects such as over-and under-exposure and printing methods. For a long time he only produced analogue photographs which he printed himself in his darkroom, but in recent years he has also explored digital photography. This new technique has introduced other approaches into his work, enabling him to experiment with different printing methods and to search the borders of monumental photography.

There’s nary an Anish Kapoor to be found at the 35th edition of Art Brussels. It’s an unusual observation for such an established fixture on the art fair calendar – but Art Brussels has proven itself to be no ordinary fair. With only a handful of blue-chip galleries present, Art Brussels has carved out a role as one of Europe’s leading discovery...
