Valentine’s Day

I have a quite a lot of photographs of kissing and hugging people in my archive. I made this compilation for 'De Standaard' on the occasion of Valentine's Day 2017:/DSNB/Productie/DS/Paginas/Nationaal/Algemeen nieuws/Ooggetuige/

HARTEN VASTHOUDEN
Over de heilige Valentinus is weinig bekend. De beschermheilige van de verliefden werd door de Romeinse keizer Claudius II in de derde eeuw onthoofd omdat hij weigerde zijn christendom op te geven. Veel later pas, in de jaren negentig, importeerden we de viering van Valentijn vanuit de Angelsaksische wereld tot bij ons. Dat gebeurde dan weer onder impuls van de middenstand.
Een bewijs dat het vieren van de liefde ook maar iets te maken heeft met de heilige Valentinus is nooit gevonden. Dezer dagen heeft liefde alles te maken met commercialiteit. Nou ja, niet echt alles, maar toch. 14 februari is doorgaans een hoogdag voor bloemisten, chocolatiers, lingeriewinkels en restaurants. Voor fotograaf Nick Hannes is het vooral een reden om nog eens in zijn archief te duiken. Want de liefde streeft men natuurlijk overal na, zo merkte hij op. Dat gebeurt liggend, zittend of staand. Nu eens met veel, dan weer met minder kleren aan. Sommigen verdrinken eerst in de fles en gaan daarna onder in de ogen van de ander. Vaker loopt het andersom.
Genieten van de ander is makkelijker bij een idyllisch uitzicht. Hoewel, Caïro en de Krim zijn anno 2017 vast niet de meest evidente plekken om de liefde te vieren. Dan toon je een koppel maar klein. Afgetekend tegen de grote wereld. Ze hopen het allemaal: de liefde nooit te moeten opgeven. Hout vasthouden.

Christmas trees

De Standaard published my series of Christmas trees, carelessly dumped in the streets of Antwerp. I made these photographs years ago, but forgot about them. They finally got published now.20170107-DS-022-DN-022-OOGG

LAST CHRISTMAS
Sommige hebben zichtbaar alles gegeven. Andere hadden gerust nog een eind door gekund, geen bruine naald te zien. Maar we vinden het weer welletjes geweest. De dagen lengen, Driekoningen is gepasseerd, de vakantie zo goed als. Lichtjes en slingers mogen de kast weer in. De boom kan naar de brandstapel, zoals er dit weekend her en der in Vlaanderen weer één wordt aangestoken, fijn stof of niet. Of hij belandt op de stoep, wachtend op de mannen van de groendienst. Een enkeling mag met geheven hoofd vertrekken. Maar de meesten gaan tegen de vlakte, virtueel gekapt. Van hero bij kamertemperatuur tot zero in de vrieskou. Hoe ging dat nummer van George Michael ook alweer?
