Photographer and artist Arno De Pooter creates a world without clutter. If it’s a man on the beach or a street corner, he’s always looking for pure settings. His photographs inhabit a certain kind of serenity and calmness that can feel a bit surreal at times.A master graduate in fine arts, the Antwerp-based photographer states: ‘These atmospheres are almost always a reaction to the way my brain perceives this extremely chaotic world. A world in which I feel more like a spectator, surrounded with an abundance of stimuli. It might be the way I would like the see the world, a bit more structured (a bit less overwhelming).’ All his photography projects are the result of a long period of reshaping and molding of his images until the right often hidden and obscured narrative comes to live.
