Denis Cartuyvels is a photographer and Belgian architect born in 1975, he has been living in Nice since 2004.
For his work he travels to very different geographical areas, he seeks to represent the idea of places crossed by images strong enough to become the symbol. This theoretical approach is softened by an amused and sometimes offbeat look.
The urban, the point of view, the decor, the scenography are at the center of his photographic work.
Recurring themes cross his images: the search for the Archetype (the prototype of a visible reality according to Plato) and the search for the Icon (the ultimate image of a situation that extinguishes the possibility of any other image).
Each of his landscapes is constructed as a painting often of great dimension, with a decor, relation to scale, a little mystery and questions voluntarily left unanswered. The trace of the human in these paintings are the graphic and poetic link that validates and amplifies the meaning of their images.
