THE BEAUTY WITHIN MY HOMETOWN
IN CONVERSATION WITH YVES VAN TENTE
Photography by Yves Van Tente
Interview by Melanie Meggs
Yves Van Tente is a photographer from Belgium living in Antwerp. He started his photographic journey only a few years ago. Given his engineering background learning the basics of the technology was not so complicated, but at the same time he discovered that photography is not just about technology. Very often in Yves's photography, the human element is only present in the background to add to the mood or even only as a silhouette. Yves is fascinated by how the use of colour, light and shadow influences the mood and feeling of any type of visual medium.
"The only constant in life is change."
Don't know if somebody ever used this as a quote, but it is at least a saying I am using a lot. I am an open minded person that is rather open to try out new experiences. I get easily bored when there is no feeling of progress anymore, so I need to try out new things regularly to keep on evolving.
