Artist statement

“Photography is the expression of a desire not to be alone, either in front or behind the camera”.

The work of Danny Van der Elst goes completely against any current standard of beauty in our society. Every day we are bombarded with images that proclaim a stereotype of men and women that we presumably should aspire to and we see how some people take those images or messages very seriously, provoking frustration. His photographs are refreshing before this social phenomenon; we come into contact with women who are proud to be who they are and are not afraid to appear vulnerable. (Arte Al Limite Magazine)
