Secret Stories by Jacqueline Bozon Beauty is created by those who dare see it. Just like cultures all have their own rituals and stories, each one of us owns our personal story in life. Why we travel and steer clear of certain paths in life: it’s all about choices we make, each turn we decide to take or set course in the opposite direction. These different experiences are so unique, leave their traces to shape an energetic route, a testimony of our own path.
From Thursday September 27th until Sunday October 28th runs a solo show in Absolute Art Gallery Brussels with the most recent work by Jimmy Nelson On Thursday September 27th the new book will be presented in the presence of Jimmy.
Classical literature and the great stories of our history tell about the unbelievable experience of great travelers, fugitives, migrants and shipwrecked people who left their country of birth or were exiled. They are the ones who not only imagined, but also built the world in which we live today.
Frieke Janssens was born in Bruges, Belgium, in 1980. After starting with evening classes in photography at an age of 15, she skipped the pilot or police on a horse option. Photography was her future. While studying photography at Sint-Lukas Brussels she was mainly interested in lifestyle, sociology and stereotypes, because she felt like she was living in two worlds. After graduating in 2002, Frieke immediately started with commissioned work, where she tries to tell a story thatʼs fascinating and mostly avoids the clichés, or use them very consciously. She's inspired by different things from paintings, comics or even a real estate website, and works with an eye for detail, humor and surrealism. Her pictures are how she imagines subjects in her head. Frieke loves the variety of working for cultural clients (FC Bergman, TAZ, ...), editorial clients (DSM, Goedele, ...), big clients (Renault, Nestea, ...), smaller clients (Gaia, De Morgen, ...) & last but not least her personal work. From working alone to a big team back to lonesome.

Group show with animalist sculptors and landscape painters in the gallery in Bruges. Two painters, Wim Ricourt and Benoît Trimborn, show their new work. Landscapes, each in their own typical style. Both artists work with oil on canvas, but do so both in a very different way. Jürgen Lingl Rebetez creates wooden sculptures with the chainsaw. He starts with a wooden block (spruce), from which he cuts out his animals. Serge Van De Put is a recycling artist who composes his sculptures with bicycle and motorcycle tires. The bronzes of Carlos Mata are a logical addition to the theme of this "Animalist & Nature" show.
