Belgian artist Reginald Van de Velde (b. 1975) searches for perfectly still moments. In a constantly developing world, his photographs provide an oasis for reflection on the passage of time, offering a new perspective on previously abandoned settings. Whilst the search for innovation and renewal is at the forefront of society, with ever more information increasingly recorded, dilapidated buildings become an ironic haven for the contemporary audience – locations and dates are lost to colossal monuments and overgrown nature. Shafts of light and decaying ceilings indicate untold narratives in the archaic structures whilst history peels away the walls; each composition paves a unique pathway for the imagination. Carefully-considered angles offer symmetry as a hypnotic tool; open doorways, staircases and passages complement their lavish surroundings and architectural details are highlighted through their precise placement. www.suspiciousminds.com.
