The Art of Light and Darkness
The fascinating Belgian photographer Bart Kuykens is already renowned for his work dedicated to vintage Porsches and aficionados, published in an heptalogy called ‘A Flat6 Love Affair’. Seven years of work, seven books – seven letters revealing PORSCHE.
Working with both Hasselblad and Leica, Kuykens exclusively practices analogue photography. His love for shape and design, coupled with his attraction for the stories behind people, captures a strong aesthetic image.
Observers often underline the darkness in his pictures, described as a grainy universe, with a playful glance. One sees brightness and spontaneity in his photographs. In fact, the raw beauty of his work is not only obtained through his predilection for chiaroscuro or the cinematic atmospheres he creates; it is a quest for the intensity of an emotion. He is a soul catcher!
