In the same vein as Jacques Sonck and simultaneously with his exhibition, the works of the Irish photographer Eamonn Doyle are exhibited at the Fifty One Gallery (in its other location in Antwerp).
This creator, often photographer, is an excellent specialist in mobility in photography. Not just any movement, he harnesses the imagination of action into the future. Not just any old how, he doesn’t need stupid blurs, bogus threads or silly tricks. Eamonn’s photographs are of excellent quality, they challenge without his needing to make fun or fool the reader. Above all, and this is essential, without the need to explain with tons of comments who is the subject, who is the photographer and the moods of each of them. The image just the image for eternity of a photograph.
It’s a real pleasure to stop and wonder in front of such well-made images. Eamonn masters his photographic know-how, selects his subjects for the future of his work and his anticipation towards this moment to come. How will a fixed and frozen scene engender our reflection on the continuation of the story and the evolution of our thoughts?
The composition, the density, the precision of the shooting angle and the uncertainty of the light are tamed at the moment “T” which will automatically lead us to an unpredictable “T+1”
