Eddy Verloes

Country: Belgium 🇧🇪

Eddy Verloes studied literature, philosophy and arts at the University of Louvain (Belgium) and the Albert-Ludwigs-Universität Freiburg im Breisgau (Germany). As a photographer, he studied at CVO Louvain (Belgium).
As a visual storyteller, he creates a poetic and mysterious world in his mainly black and white photos that sometimes balance between realism and surrealism. He is always focused on the decisive moment and shoots with his soul, not with his camera. Some of his (street) photos are also spiced with a touch of humor and it's difficult to put him in a box.
Between 2015 and 2022 he has published 5 photo books ("No time to Verloes", "Cuba libre", "Zeezuchten" , "Losing Our Minds/Buiten zinnen" and "Aardelingen/Earthlings") and has exhibited in several galleries in the USA, the United Kingdom, Russia, France, Austria, Greece, Hungary, Italy, Spain, Serbia, Germany, The Netherlands and Belgium.
He has been selected several times for international competitions (LensCulture, Life Framer, All-About-Photo) and has received more than 50 awards in 2020/2022.
