Bruno V. Roels
Born in 1976, Bruno Roels lives and works in Ghent (Belgium).

He divides his time between writing, photographing, and writing about
photography. He considers the act of printing (turning a photograph into a
tangible object) as important as the act of photographing itself.

He photographs almost nonstop, documenting his entire life, building a
sizable archive. In his dark room he uses that archive to explore the
analogue photographic process. Rather than trying to make ‘the perfect
gelatin silver print’ he assumes that all prints are perfect and gives all
variations equal attention.

He’s looking for poetry, and photographic truth, in sequences and
fluctuations. Details in his photographs may become lead motives in bigger
compositions, and obvious subject matter is reduced to abstract
information through numerous reiterations.
