The photo series Beyond Reach was created during last year’s lockdown.
This body of work is about all these places that are beyond reach, either physically or metaphorically. At first, Antoine wanted to keep it only about the locations that have been forced to temporarily shut down during the lockdown but later decided to extend it to other places that have been closed for a longer time. Lost paradises such as endless construction sites and places in which access is forbidden, missing, or hidden became the recurring points of focus for this photographic hauntology.
It seeks to depict our deserted reality as brief glimpses into not-so-distant parallel universes. Both optimistic and pessimistic in nature, there is this longing for past carelessness and this conviction that brighter days are ahead despite the two being beyond reach as of now.

Meet Antoine Dechambre, a 30 years old data engineer originally from Liège who has relocated to Amsterdam 5 years ago. Antoine was always interested in photography, but he used to shoot only with his phone and with a point-n-shoot camera, mostly when travelling abroad. Last year Antoine bought a medium format film camera and since then, his favourite activity is getting on his bike and shoot places in Amsterdam or Belgium that have something particular about them.
