Avud is a cover name and that of the photographer is a cover job.
Avud captures precious out of time moments.
This is true for his photography and for his other professional identity, that will be uncovered in a few lines.
Originally from Lecce, the white Baroque city in the heel of the boot, Avud lands in Brussels and discovers a melting pot of styles and cultures, a blend of thousands of nationalities and characters flirting at the border line with absolute human madness.
In the last 5 years Avud camera has been roaming in the underground scene of Brussels streets, in a quest of faces, characters, improbable scenes. Shooting secrets, robbing banks of intimity with ethics for esthethics, Avud catches Life just at the right time.
His technique : no zoom and a gentle slide in his screen to remain discrete and avoid any alteration of the moment.
Could it be that his years of medicine studies and practice as a surgeon , developed a skill made of both stealing and healing the moment,
able to seize the authenticity of his subjects with an outcome of a rare spontaneity.
Avud wraps us in a romantic italian fabric, letting us taste a divine blend between naked realism and onirical poetry.
Raw monstrous beauty with no filters.
Stealing moments from reality , Avud shoots reveal poetry and dreams at work at all times.
