Featured Profile

Marc Lagrange (1957-2015) was born in Kinshasa, Congo. His career path led him from engineering to photography, and his creativity from fashion to art. Privileging analog over digital, the Antwerp-based Belgian artist searched for intimacy and emotion as opposed to artificial effects. His giant Polaroids, which have been exhibited worldwide, are a powerful example of his craft as well as his attention to detail: he displayed the texture of skin, highlight natural curves and make his models stand out. Lagrange elaborated entire sets until he found the exact mood he wished to convey, with the end goal being to create the images he wanted. From the color of the walls to the shape of a chair, every single detail counted, underlining Lagrange’s perfectionist streak and his willingness to unfold narratives.

And some see Mudam as a space for collectivity, for openness, for events and an experimental approach. (more…)

Hailing from diverse generations and backgrounds, these individuals converge to explore how flames have served as agents of change across time and space. (more…)
