about Geert Goiris
The photographs of Geert Goiris often denote a fundamental tension between man and nature. He documents unusual encounters with subjects that appear distinctly out of place and shows strange, abandoned urban environments with a hint of nostalgia, solitude and drama or utopian landscapes with traces of human presence. By regularly taking the viewpoint of the ‘outsider’, Goiris creates a tangible distance between photographer and subject. As he plays with form, abstraction, light and depth, all sense of time and space is banished using prolonged photographic exposure to reflect the unnaturalness of the situations he encounters; a style which the artist himself describes as “Traumatic Realism”.
