Athos Burez has a degree as a visual artist and that you can see in the pictures. If he is a modecampagne or a young band to photograph, every time he creates a magical backdrop. The one time he builds a film set, with paintings and quirky items. The other times he just verkleedkoffer to the appointment. “I like to work on location, preferably on impressive places that look after a few small changes to go even further look. I try with my photos always have a story to tell.”

His favorite modeopdracht, there is now one for Café Costume: “Last year, Café Costume the necessary rights acquired to create a collection inspired by the work of René Magritte. In the accompanying photo shoot, I was his paintings with a role to play. Magritte’s surrealism and asbsurdisme I admire enormously. I also got about carte blanche, so it was a heavenly assignment.”

His favorite photo from the Café Costume set? “I made a lot of colorful pictures, but my favorite is the sculptor who himself creates out of a hunk of clay. On some paintings of Magritte seems to be the full interior out of stone or rock. I wanted this image to respond to them. The model of service is Florian, who is himself a sculptor. The whole picture is an interpretation of Magritte’s work.”
