Laurent Muschel

Photography
Laurent Muschel lives and works in Brussels. He has already exhibited in several galleries in Brussels, but also in the US and in Asia. His work revolves around several axes: the story with the capture of snapshots, ambient and staging photography, and finally collaborative work. Playing with contrasts, colours and poses, he offers an instantly recognizable vision that captures the fleeting moment without caricaturing or enclosing it. In this context, he has realized a work in museums ('Back to museum'), where he has photographed people from the back integrating them into the paintings or works presented. Playing with matches, he establishes a new form of dialogue between the viewer and the work itself. Since, he continues his search for powerful images. He has made a series of 'underground' photos and has cooperated with his wife to complete works in four hands of an undeniable force. He takes pictures and she paints them. They are MagLau.
