Reykjavìk is Icelands capital and largest city and has long lacked a clear architectural distinction As a practical solution to the elements and possible natural disaster a lot of the homes, churches and commercial buildings were clad with corrugated steel which was then painted in various bright colors. The city embraced this cladding method for it's versaility and affordability and it is now a distinct feature of Reykjavìks architecture.
Robin Vandenabeele is a photographer based near Bruges in Belgium. Traveling extensively for work landed him with a desire to visually document all the places and moments that were frequented. There has always been a large amount of experimentation in his photography, for example by using outdated films, cross-processing and film pushing during development, using creative viewpoints and lenses when composing images. After seeing results from a experimental in-camera double exposure technique he became quickly interested in the further possibilities and has since not stopped to create series of juxtaposing city- and landscapes using both film and digital cameras on various locations visited around the world.
Being an autodidact in photography allows Robin to use a non-traditional approach to the image making process. His influences are photographers with diverse styles such as Sarah Moon, Mario Giacomelli, Man Ray, Henri Lartigue, Peter Beard, Franco Fontana, Jan Saudek and others.
Robin has work on display aboard several cruise ships and in boutique hotels all over the world. In 2018 he participated in the Photo Fringe festival in Trieste.
From 2010-2018 several nominations (black&White spider awards, Int'l color Awards) in various categories. His work is also used on a multitude of bookcovers.
