Through his photos Eddy Verloes tries to make time stand still and make us consider the question as to how long we will still be able to enjoy our coasts and our planet. The photographer confronts us not only with the insignificance - sometimes even pathos - of man in nature, where he is only a spot in the great whole but, at the same time, he sets his sights on that same spot and his photos raise a gentle or even broad smile on our faces. What, in fact, are we doing here? How do we fritter away our time on this planet? We race past ourselves all year round only to make up the "lost time" in one or another paradise. In some of his photos he exposes the person both literally and figuratively, not to hold him up to ridicule directly, but rather to show how he essentially is. Perhaps nature is the point of light and/or repose in the search for man himself. That is also why you will often find in the photos a lonely man out walking (with or without dog) who perhaps brings us to the understanding that the time we spend here is actually no more than a grain of sand in the desert. The only possible solution for survival is for us to connect with each other and with the planet: GET CONNECTED !!! Cause we are one. One world. One consciousness. That is our survival. And only that. Work together and come as one. According to the photographer, the sea is the most suitable place for reflection/connection. There you see the human being in its purest form. Sea and humor create freedom and are, in a manner of photography, inseparably bound with Eddy Verloes.
