Ben Goossens

Ex Art Director from Belgium

Interested in photography and illustration at the age of 16.

After High School, 4 years of Art School, where photography was one of the sections, later 15 years darkroom experience.

Worked 35 years as an Art Director in advertising, used first the traditional techniques to create "surreal" visuals.
Later when Mac and Photoshop came (from the first version) it change completely the way of creation.
Worked together with the best advertising photographers, to realize the visual concepts.

What I make now for my hobby, is a logic follow-up from what I did as profession: surreal concepts. Those surreal images are edited worldwide in books, magazines, on websites and in Youtube films and were awarded in most photo-contest since 40 years .
Have been also invited many times as jury in photo-contest

My wish: make the perfect composed surreal image...maybe one day?
