Sylvie Deleu, Concerned Photography

Sylvie Deleu is a very special woman.  
"Concerned photography" shows her work at RHoK Gallery in Etterbeek, till May 19. The artist is present on Thursday from 2 to 6 pm and on Saturday from 11 am to 4 pm.
Sylvie was born in Courtrai (or Kortrijk in Dutch), Belgium, studied in Breda (the Netherlands), created a photo illustration and data agency in Brussels,  traveled around the world for her art and participated in several exhibitions. She received prices and a lot of recognition.
More than a decade ago, Sylvie got confronted with an illness which left her visually impaired. At the  exhibition a video shows how she sees the photographed subject and yet manages to use the tools offered in this digital age to her advantage. Sylvie rediscovered her trade and passion.  It is extremely remarkable what this woman can do, she impressed me a whole lot by her personality, her drive, her inspiring photography.  
If you are in the Brussels area,  I highly recommend you go and discover her work.

  1. Hallo Anni,
    Je eerste foto is gewoon meesterlijk!

    Jammer genoeg kom ik niet meer zo vaak in Brussel en zal ik haar tentoonstelling missen.

    Groetjes,
    Frans

  6. Dank voor jullie commentaren, ze zullen ook Sylvie plezier doen !
    Jeroen, ik hoop dat je er geraakt.. en misschien best op een ogenblik dat Sylvie aanwezig is. Ze toont dan een video "vues de l'intérieur", echt de moeite.
    inderdaad Lies, volkomen gelijk.
    Merci Méline pour la première visite, si je ne me trompe.

  12. C'est fou le nombre de photographes qui se prennent pour des artistes. (celle-ci en est peut-être vraiment une)

  19. L'art n'est pas forcément de la photographie, mais des fois, la photograhie est de l'art.

  24. J'ai été touché par ses photos, elles m'ont emporté en voyage, je ne m'y attendais pas du tout... D'une force incroyable et d'une grande beauté!

    What an incredible and inspiring woman, what a mesmerizing exhibition! Don't hesitate to pass by and let yourself be transported by the sheer strength and captivating quality of these pictures...

    Aangrijpend, inspirerend en intrigerend. Elk van deze foto's is niet alleen een document van een persoon (of personen) die men ontdekt, maar telkens ook een spiegel waar ik steeds iets van mezelf in kon terugvinden.

    La condition humaine en quelques clins d'oeil, ça vaut la peine de découvrir et redécouvrir!

  25. O, wat ontzettend jammer dat ik dit nu pas ontdek!
    Was zeker gekomen, wil Sylvie haar recente foto's zien en haarzelf ook natuurlijk. Heb samen met haar in Breda fotografie gestudeerd op St.Joost en van 1970 tot 1972 waren wij huisgenoten.

    Hartelijke groeten, Emile Waagenaar, Breda
