Dirk Braeckman

With their matte surfaces, gray scales and unclear motifs, the black-and- white photographs of the Belgian artist Dirk Braeckman (born in 1958) are utterly enigmatic. Working on the boundaries of the medium of photography, they combine fleetingness and substance, texture and distance. The pictures don’t tell stories, though one might be tempted to think so. Leaving the moment in which the image was captured behind, each work reveals the diffuse process behind its own creation.
