Biography

 


© Axelle Degrave
Photographer Eddy Van Gestel lives and works in Belgium and Africa. He gained international fame through his coffee table books “A Continent in the Picture”, “To the Rhythm of the Sun”, “Africa XL”, “Terra Africana” and “African Queen”.

Over the years his style has become more serene and restrained, stripped of any excess, complex perspectives and difficult angles. The portraits he is shooting have one thing in common: they draw their graphic strength from their simplicity. To him photography is a quest for a magical and mysterious world, where there’s a very fine line between reality and impression. This is certainly true for this collection of photographs, which highlights the unsurpassed beauty of African women.
