Geert de Taeye

About

Geert De Taeye is a creative and multifaceted photographer who shoots advertising campaigns, portraits, landscapes, painting, movie-inspired pictures and Artworks. This diversity has been essential for the young photographer to distinguish himself and forge a place within a culture dominated by ‘the image’. Geert’s approach is subtle and clever; he photographs and rearranges what he sees, reinventing and manipulating what is actually taking place at a given moment in time. He combines flawless techniques with the force of persuasion, irony and empathy. The truth is not always apparent and his work never ceases to captivate.
