The magic of analogue photography
Eric Lowie was born and raised in the Marolles: the most authentic neighbourhood of historic Brussels, but also the beating heart of a new Europe. Similar contrasts can also be seen in his work. Black and white, warmth and cold, day and night, life and death: they are all extremes reinforced by their opposites in the same image.
Eric found his preference for the panoramic format of his photos in cinematography. He discovered at a young age that images are not limited to the moments they are registered. The broad frame offers the artist the chance to let his snapshot live on, far beyond the limitations of a classic photo format.
