Michel Vanden Eeckhoudt

Belgian photographer Michel Vanden Eeckhoudt was what one could call a “streehunter”. His hunting ground was the street and the public space. In 2015, he passed away after a long illness, and today the GAF pays tribute to him through a retrospective.

Michel Vanden Eeckhoudt and his Leica photographed animals on numerous occasions. Those images are imbued with humor, but also suffused with a vague bitterness. “Bittersweet” gathers together mysterious and almost surrealistic images. Many of them can only be understood at second glance and then hit the soul.
Animals is one of Vanden Eeckhoudt’s areas of expertise since his first visit in a zoo, when he was a teenager. He has always been interested in animal life, and most particularly in its connections with human beings and its living conditions in captivity. Those disturbing photographs never are ominous, but always are in-depth and shrewd. Through those animals, he tells about us.

« Beyond the bizarre, beyond the comical nature that underscores without caricaturizing, here is a respect for the other, a tenderness, a humility in his photographs that charges them with emotion.
His resulting compositions are arranged with a steady eye while managing to transform real life moments into often mysterious images without reverting to the anecdotal. »
Jean-Christophe Bailly
