David De Beyter is a french photographer. His approach to photography is both conceptual and documentary. He explores the boundaries between reality and fiction and De Beyter’s work melts together different registers – the present, past and future. His artistic work is mainly based on the concept of Landscape practice and through exhibition’s installations he questions the different status of the image. There is an anthropological side to what De Beyter does. Although present in his work since the beginning, it flourished with the Big Bangers project. On this occasion, he opens up his artistic work to moving images and sculpture, thus refining his reflection and his plastic propositions around the notion of obsolescence.

David De Beyter is graduated in Photography from ENSAV of La Cambre in Brussels in 2008 and post-graduated from Le Fresnoy in Tourcoing in 2010. His work is exhibited in collective exhibitions in France and internationally, Fotomuseum in Vienna, Sofia Foundation Sofia, Aperture Foundation in New York, L’Élysée Museum in Lausanne with Regeneration 2 project. From 2015 to 2017, he set up a co-production between the Center of Art Image/Imatge in Pau, the Art Center le BBB in Toulouse and the Photographic Center of Ile de France, co-production that leads to a personal exhibition in each of the places involved. His work was recently published in Art Press, Movement, Liberation and Usbek & Rica. His work has recently been selected for the prestigious FOAM Talent 2017 photographic exhibition, which will be exhibited in Amsterdam, Paris, Brussels, London and New York in 2017 and 2018.
