“A photograph does not depict reality. A photo is an unfinished thought. That is what is so interesting about an image: the things you choose not to show.” - Jimmy Kets
Photojournalism literally captures the spirit of an age; it is our window on the world in a way that can appeal to everyone. Jimmy Kets is a photojournalist and an expert in the art of photojournalism with more than two decades of experience. Today his work is exhibited in places as far-flung as Japan.
“My starting point for a portrait is not the person in front of me, but the setting. I go on the setting and the light. The photograph is not about who is in it. It is about telling a story. That is what took me to a Brussels love hotel with singer Daan, to an Ostend animal crematorium, to some traditional neighbourhood pub or the Waregem Koerse horse racing event." – Jimmy Kets
It’s in the details
His style is characterised by a keen eye for detail and a discerning look at events. He captures celebrities in surprising ways, like clarinetist Roeland Hendrikx, actor Tom Van Dyck and musician Daan Stuyven.
