Chantal Maes (Watermael-Boisfort 1965)

The work of Chantal Maes explores the essence of photography and film. She sees it not as the representation of an object or a person, but as something that is satured with emotion and poetry. 'Inward Whispers' is a series of portraits of airport staff with a vacant, absent-minded expression. Het video 'Take a look from the inside' follows the mental effect of reading by filming a printed page with the camera and reading a tekst while following its movements.
