Jimmy Kets counts as one of Belgium´s most talented press- and documentary photographers. He shows a strong fascination with the nearby, the local. With his penetrating eyes, Kets excels in unmasking appearances, allowing for a deeper understanding of what is presented. Ultimately, Kets exposes a sense of sadness and emptiness where people are wandering around lost, searching in vain to quench their thirst for a thrill.
Kets is praised for his sharp power of observation and upfront approach. Next to his photography, Kets is also specialised in filming and directing. In his movies as well as in his photos, he focusses on observing the subject.
