VINCEN BEECKMAN (Schaerbeek, 1973)
As an artist, Vincen Beeckman looks for the various possibilities linked to documentary photography in interaction with others and with the existing environment. He works for the association Recyclart and is a founding member and coordinator of BlowUp, a collective that unites several photographers who make their practices public in an open confrontation. The artist creates series of photos of everyday life, in a family environment, for research or on request. He uses the camera as an instrument which captures the events he participates in, the people he meets, what he sees, the places he travels to and the places he is part of. Beeckman’s photographic technique seems to be based on a strange combination of luck and production.
