Vernissage: Karel Fonteyne

In November YUST Art welcomes world-renowned fashion and art photographer Karel Fonteyne.

After studying fine arts at the SISA in Antwerp, Karel Fonteyne went on to start a career in art photography. From 1980 he moved to Italy and was propelled into a 17-year career in fashion photography. Since then, he’s travelled the world with his profession.

Karel Fonteyne’s work is impossible to label within traditional classifications. Every image is a veritable scene, a novel, a story. Fonteyne uses photography in the same way a writer uses words to describe a new world. This world is a troubled one, halfway between the impossible and the real. The images are forceful, they display a subtle contradiction between violence and vulnerability, force and fragility, beauty and horror.

Join us for the free vernissage on Tuesday 16 November from 8pm.
