Christopher de Bethune | Sunshine: first solo exhibition in Switzerland
Christopher de Bethune is a Belgian photographer, known for taking photos of scenes and landscapes, in which he finds sadness, comfort and nostalgia. His work can be described a both impulsive and cautious, as the artist is ready to take a shot whenever he sees an opportunity, but also to be patient and wait for the right moment. Some of his photographs have the note of melancholy and solitude that represent a constituent of leaving and travelling.
The first photos made by this autodidact photographer, were primarily the documentation of his surroundings, like alternative rock music scene. This artist is completely old camera lover, addicted to fanzines since he was a child, passionate about films and worships the Japanese grandmasters, like Kurosawa.
Christopher compares himself with a cat that walks discretely, whithout making a noise. This series of photos are usually made on the author's way back to home from the nightlife.
