Ruud Van Empel - 25 Years Of Photo Works 1995-2020
|Author||Christian Caujolle E.a.|
|Publisher||Hangar Art Center|
Photographer and visual artist Ruud van Empel has evolved a striking style through his experimentation with the tension between the camera and digital technology. Demonstrating a strong technical prowess, he digitally dissects and reconstructs fragments taken from his own photographs to create hybrid works of astonishing colour: dreamlike scenes, arresting portraits of women and children, quirky and curious gatherings of objects, lush and leafy forests, and surreal undersea vistas. This book is published to accompany a retrospective of his work in Brussels, the scope of which includes nearly 400 images – an invitation to enter a sublime, magnificent, and marvellous world.
