Johan Buelens lives in Brussels where he creates his photographic work. He has studied biology, philosophy and photography. It is indeed the mixture of these different experiences that guides the sense of his creativity.
We want to introduce you to his subject called Dies Irae. When you attentively examine his work, you get a feeling of softness, peace and calmness. As Johan Buelens has said, he does not try to make something sensational, kitsch as often we are shown.
The photographic detail dominates here. We do not need to try to determine where we are but more to live with the picture and its magical sensation. Aesthetic sense gives a very particular relief, geometric compositions outstanding. The colors of the past bring a melancholy, and the eye of the photographer grabs the whole of the photograph which becomes much like a painting.
