My muse in portraits “Keep what you do not want to lose” that is the core of this series. Paul Rooyackers, my friend, is 20 years older than me. Great chance he’ll die sooner than me. In order to keep the memory alive, I now attach him to portraits. In the series, classic, photographic interpretations alternate with ironically-sought-after views or sometimes with a wink to iconic paintings. Making these portraits has become my life and will most likely not stop unless Paul really will not be anymore.
