    Silver in Portfolio / Fine Art

My series “Losing our minds” was taken at the beginning of the corona crisis: a bizarre, but extremely fascinating period. Man loses his mind because a stormy situation presents itself that is new and challenging for him. These are photos of ultra-Orthodox Jews on the Belgian coast who can enjoy their freedom in an unorthodox way in the storm (of their lives) and escape the lockdown. 

Eddy Verloes is a multi-award-winning photographer from Belgium. He is a literary symbolic photographer, a visual storyteller. His atmospheric shots of interiors, landscapes, and urban life hover beautifully between realism and surrealism. Taking a spontaneous approach to the craft, Verloes captures the unexpected moments of the everyday. His studies of literature and philosophy fueled an inquisitive search for the mystical and the poetic. He shoots with his soul, not with the camera. Please don't put him in a box.
