Jos Joos is pleased to announce a series of new photographs by Belgian artist Eric Ostermann.
Ostermann’s photographic project started with a finding: Brussels current and former residents love Brussels, so does he. He wants to show the city as he sees it and to highlight some spots that people see every day without really paying attention to.
For this purpose, Ostermann chooses street scenery, reflections and rooftops view’s photographs. These last ones are particularly important in Ostermann’s work. Standing on building rooftops gives a calm feeling, despite the city noises. Watching the sun going down and the city lighting up from Brussels roof is even more pleasant when shared through photography.
Most of Ostermann’s photography work is dedicated to street photography. He likes to walk down Brussels every weekend, capture every detail, play with lights and shadows.
The artist views also the city through reflections, like in flasks of water, fountains and ponds. At ground level, which is the only way to catch those reflections, you see the perfect mirror of the subject. Giving a surprisingly, confusing result.
