"Braeckman's pictures of anonymous rooms, abstract spaces, and faceless nudes have a tactile quality, the matte surface of the images soaking up the light, creating a silvery world of ephemeral moments. There is very little sharp contrast in use, no harsh blacks or stark whites; only a modulated spectrum of middle greys, optimized for blurred, elusive nuance. Nondescript beds, curtains, wallpaper, and bodies reflect splashes of soft reflected light - carefully composed interior details become mysterious, a rumpled bedspread is transformed into an elegant, impressionistic pattern."DLK Collection

"By keeping it dark and grey and printing it out of focus, I eliminate part of the information which detracts from the essence. In this way I aim for a purified situation, into which you are thrown as a viewer. I investigate things that seem insignificant. These are all places that somehow look as though they’ve been lived in, where the space has withstood a great deal or where people have gone through a lot, though you’ll never know what that was."-- Dirk Braeckman
