Hubert Grooteclaes was a Belgian photographer, trained as a portrait photographer in the post-war era. Obsessed with the idea of ​​making "different", he sought in every way to differentiate himself from other photographers.This research was going to lead him to screen printing, coloured photos, symmetries, the use of mirrors, what he called photo-graphics and artistic blurs. On this subject, Grooteclaes could not have been clearer: I have been fuzzy for eleven years, he declared in October 1984. Because I am more myopic and presbyopic. In addition, I'm losing my memory. As for his technique, he summed it up simply: I shoot my photos with an unordered optics, then I turn them to brown, then I colour them. With what do I colour them? With difficulty, with rage, with love. And with a little bit of colour!
