Photography is a medium that transforms reality on the basis of observation and technique. In the work of Dries Segers, perception (or its absence) has always been a central element. Since 2019 his technical experiments with sensory invisibility (light, time, chemical and technical reactions) have given way to making (in)visible living matter tangible. In the artist's book 'FUNGI', Segers brings his recurring play with scale and transformation to the surface. For 'No Road to Hotel Bellevue', the artist selected 25 photographs from his archive that form the roots of a speculative environment. What started out from observation and photographic truthfulness continues more as a suggestion of a reality that starts from the natural environment instead of humankind.
