Louis De Belle is a Berlin based photographer. Born in Milano, he studied Visual Communication and is currently completing a MFA at the Bauhaus University of Weimar. The aim of his photographic work is to highlight the strangeness and plasticity of isolated motifs drawn from everyday scenes. He recently got awarded with the Bauhaus Essentials prize. Today we take a look at his series Ordinary Backdrops.
Ordinary Backdrops is a photographic series shot in Japan. The photographs stand for a sense of plasticity which belongs to ordinary yet unusual views of the suburban scenario. It’s about witnessing a “state of things”: backdrops of everyday life, waiting for something to happen, yet being already protagonists of a careful composition.
