I like to stretch out the time. You can constantly question my images: there are new stories in them every time’ –Dirk Braeckman

Dirk Braeckman’s work brings stillness to today’s influx of images and information. Working with analogue photography, he developed a visual language that reflects on the act of viewing and the status of the image.
