Things and Winks

 For Loek Raemakers, photography is fighting indifference, plainness, banality, blandness.
 With a curious, exploring view, he places ordinary things in a completely new perspective.
 He uncovers what isnít covered. Things stay no longer unobserved in the background,
 as part of a decor, but instead claim the stage for themselves.
 This vision needs photography,to bring these things to life, to let them speak for themselves.
 Photography is a revaluation of the ordinariness of day-to-day reality.
 The photographs that Raemakers makes are the result of a journey
 through a seemingly uninteresting, plain and close-by environment.
 His photographs deserve the attention that the photographed things do not get.
