With images showing everyday life, objects of our close environment and some subtle portraits, Brussels based photographer, Sven Laurent is exploring the questions of space, time and existence, revealing the unconventional beauty of our close environment.
Some days I feel invisible,
I feel like I’m going to dissolve into fear, sadness and anxiety.
On those days I make pictures,
no more doubt, no more questions,
just the moment, peace and tranquility.
For me photography has always been about comfort and contemplation. Finding beauty in my close surroundings is a balancing act in order to survive the social and political turmoil of the world we live in.
Carrying a camera most of the time, I take pictures wherever I am. I don’t look for the exotic or the spectacular. Images appear to me, triggered by the light, colour, shape or perspective, revealing the beauty that often goes unseen.
