From the banks of the River Ganges to sacred Vodun altars; from Brussels, a constantly recurring theme, to Ouidah, Hong Kong, Ouagadougou, Hanoi, Darjeeling, Vancouver and Kinshasa. It is important to listen to Jean-Dominique when he talks about his photography. It is always through the beauty of the women and men who inhabit his photographs, through the richness of their cultures, that he approaches his work. When he talks about himself, it is about his wonder and amazement, the magic that occurs with each encounter, and the journey that brought him there. Without doubt, that is where the coherence in his work lies. When it comes to defining his photography, imposing a label on it or finding an artistic affiliation, he finds this more difficult.

« I am the complete opposite of a war photographer – but there are few words than can define this »

The author

  • Jean-Dominique Burton

    Jean-Dominique Burton, born in Huy (Belgium), is a Belgian photographer and film director. A tireless traveller, enquiring humanist with a keen, observant eye, Jean-Dominique Burton has turned his attention in recent years to the hidden secrets of Africa, after years travelling in Asia. His approach embraces a sensitive, poetic form of anthropology that unveils beliefs and practices with restraint, respect and a responsible sense of fascination. His photography conveys the pleasure of discovery, a meditation on the origins of artistic creation, with a play on form and theme that steers away from any sterile exoticism.

    Jean-Dominique Burton met Jephan de Villiers in 1986, a year when his appreciation of the delicate poetry of de Villiers’ sculptures, together with his philosophy of life close to animism and a respect for nature, brought them together to work on a number of projects, among them ‘Mille et trois souffles d'écorce ou la dernière forêt en marche (‘One Thousand and Three Strips of Bark or the Last Forest on the Move’, Fragments de mémoire (‘Fragments of Memory’), Bestioles ou Bestiaire pour un enfant-roi (‘Beasts and Bestiaries for a Spoilt Child’) and The Bears, to name a few.
