Ben Goossens | Surrealistic Art
Ben Goossens worked for 35 years in his native Belgium as an ad agency art director. After retiring, Goossen’s turned to creating photo montages with a distinctive Surrealism style reminiscent of his fellow countryman, René Magritte.
Goossens’ images have received awards in a number of prestigious international photography competitions including Gold and Silver medals at the Trierenberg Super Circuit, the world’s largest annual photography salon.
Goossens has also seen his work widely published, including an in-depth 10 page exposition in the March 2007 edition of Photo Art International. His composite photos are remarkable for their seamless yet painterly renderings of Surrealism dreamscapes.
Ben said: “After art school, where photography was one of the sections, I worked 35 years as an art director in advertising and already 15 years with photoshop, to realize the ideas. Creating experimental/surrealistic photomontages is now my hobby and passion.
I sent those images to international experimental photocontest’s with success and I try to create my own personal image. What I make now, is a logic follow-up from what I did professionally. Maybe those images are not accepted by everybody, but the last years they are edited all over the world in magazines and books.”
