Jacques Sonck: Portraits

Jacques Sonck: Portraits

MonoVisions Black & White Photo Contest 2022

FIFTY ONE TOO is proud to present ‘Portraits’ by Belgian photographer Jacques Sonck (°1949), an exhibition filled with unique individuals and accidental encounters. Sonck’s first solo show at the gallery, will focus on his purified black-and-white street portraits and will bring together both old and new work.

Jacques Sonck shoots classical analogue black-and-white portraits with an eye for the extraordinary. Across all ages, genders and races, Sonck is attracted by people who stand out from the crowd and walk on the border of ‘normality’, either by an anomaly in their appearance or by their extravert attitude or clothing-style. He comes across these exceptional models on the streets of Belgian cities like Antwerp, Ghent and Brussels and photographs them on the spot, often in front of a neutral background.
