Closing our blue chapter

Bringing the current blue haze hovering above our heads to a close, former Word photography intern Joke De Wilde (who saw her portrait of Lierse football club fanatic Raphael Selderslaghs grace our yellow album‘s cover) took it upon herself to create this soft-spoken series for us. Defined by her characteristic distant approach to photography – think of Joke as the kind of photographer to take a step back in order to allow her subjects to come to the fore – the series of eight portraits tells tales of fragility and mystery, capturing desolate interiors and tormented souls in a tense universe of eerie beauty.
