At the occasion of his sixties birthday a selection of Filip Claus’ portfolio is on display in the city center of Ghent. 32 other Belgian photographers selected a picture out of Filip's portfolio and matched it with one their own. Today, Filip guided an interested crowd throughout the city center and provided insights on his pictures and shared with us the rational why the other photographer paired one of his or her pictures with his work. Sometimes the complementary picture was chosen based on colors, shapes, history, content or narrative… the stories were sometimes funny or controversial but at all occasions insightful. Thumbs up Filip! Thanks to all involved preparing this unconventional exhibition - Ghent, Belgium exhibition - Ghent, Belgium

I’ve been living in and traveling to the USA for decades… And, the more I travel in the US the more I realize just how much of it there is to see. I still haven't been to Yellowstone or Yosemite or some of the smaller states. I have only seen a tiny slice of Texas, and have a huge amount of the Midwest left to explore. And then there are the places I always want to go back to — places like the Bay Area, Chicago and New England. Even though I have SO MUCH more to see, here are some of the highlights from my US travel.
"Photography is an art of observation. It’s about finding something interesting in an ordinary place. It has little to do with the things you see and everything to do with how you see them."
I just like to take pictures, I just push the button. I never worked in the darkroom, I never studied photography or journalism; I’m just a passionate photographer.
