Jeffrey De Keyser (born 23 February 1984 in Kortrijk) is a Ghent-based Belgian street photographer who likes to focus on the surreal and absurd condition of human existence. He sees photography as a mirror of the subconscious, as an existential inquiry into perception, as a way of questioning the Camusian conflict between the human tendency to seek meaning and purpose in life and the human inability to find any. His aim as a photographer is to portray a slice of the human condition, a glimpse of the subconscious mind through a universal visual language. His photography is strongly inspired by the surrealist movement.
His work has been exhibited and curated internationally, including at the Brussels Street Photography Festival, the London Street Photography Festival, the Italian Street Photo Festival in Rome, and Street Sans Frontières in Paris. Features that have been published online include PhotoVogue, Life Framer and Eyeshot Magazine.
