The Sweetest Taboo
Taboo meets aesthetics
Over the past two decades Frieke Janssens has built a solid reputation in staged photography. Her visual language is both surprising and playful and reveals a great sense of humor. It is often redolent with tension and her works exude an unspoken, tragic undercurrent. Janssens' images are sumptuously beautiful, but touch upon subjects that aren't: death, smoking, drinking, and the battle between the sexes. This combination of taboo and pure aestheticism marks her style, hence: The Sweetest Taboo.
About the Author:
When a Frieke Janssens photograph appears in a major Belgian magazine it does not go unnoticed, but it is her own publications that have garnered worldwide acclaim as meticulous series of photographs, impressively framed with a strong aesthetic attraction. Janssens has opened exhibitions everywhere, from Vladivostok to New York. In 2016, she held an overview exhibit called 20 Years of Photography in Antwerp.
