Hidden Portraits

 

Autoportrait au Polaroïd - II am a Belgian photographer, Bernard Caelen. My photographic alias is Irving S. T. Garp in reference to John Irving’s novel “The World According to Garp.” There is, I hope, a certain form of analogy between Irving’s style and my pictural universe.

Some models sometimes want to try to get photographed naked. But the fact of showing their body bothers them. It’s not modesty or shyness that holds them from doing it, it is the fear of being recognized by people they know, friends or family. In the series “Portraits Cachés” (Hidden Portraits), the models can be photographed naked and can hide their head in an original way.

In Irving’s books, some worst disasters appear, unexpected, in the middle of sentences, slipped into a description of an common daily life. My photos are recognized by their original and offbeat staging.
