Photographer's Note

Belgicum

After the post of Herlinde Koelbl exhibition last week, I want to show you an exhibition of an entirely different photographer who’s into old school documentary work: Stephan Vanfleteren. It’s shot at the "Belgicum" exhibition in the Antwerpen Fotomuseum. For me Stephan Vanfleteren was thι photographer discovery of the last years.
In his own words:
“Through flat country, passing language borders, through decrepit industry zones. An excursion of a country with scars, in search of an untraceable identity but with the melancholic soul of a 177 years old nation."

Check out the web site of the museum here and his website here.

The public was clearly mesmerized by the large prints and I tried to capture the ensuing tension. In the WS I zoomed in on this tension a bit further.

The PCS3 tech: I first ran the pic thru Noiseware (the low light capabilities of the little Fuji are fab but at 800 ISO it's beginning to struggle with the noise), then altered the saturation, contrast, curves and levels for the whole pic and some elements separately, using different layers, enhanced the edges, USM-ed added a frame and resized, and enhanced the edges on a 65% transparent frame and did a gentle USM (1,0px, 17%) again.
