Eric de Ville is a Belgian photographer whose imagination conjures up unknown worlds – surrealistic worlds – that he re-creates and photographs. His approach to photography diverts from the objectivity of the traditional photographer and is more aligned with that of a painter. The classical photographer sees the subject to photograph, chooses the framing, and then waits for the perfect light or a precise moment. Eric de Ville, on the other hand, thinks up a theme or imagines the subject, and then interprets those musings in his photographic images.
