About this title


Monkey or dog, animals strange or familiar, Belgian photographer Michel Vanden Eeckhoudt does not differentiate. He fixes a moment of meeting between two beings, so close, so different. Beyond the bizarre, beyond the comical nature that underscores without caricaturizing, there is a respect of the other, a tenderness, a humility in his photographs that charges them with rare emotion. Since he began looking through his Leica's viewfinder, he has created pure and elegant photographs marked by a constant sense of humor. His compositions are arranged with a steady eye while managing to transform real life moments into often mysterious images.
