This work is part of the ‘Appreciate the unappreciated’ series, which is an ongoing work, with a clear focus on locations and objects that are left unnoticed.

Photographers always tend to look for stories behind an image. As a minimal photographer, telling stories is all about abstraction. Renaat Nijs always works in series of 3 images, to give the audience a little more perspective, and to spark their curiosity for these otherwise disregarded locations.

For Subbacultcha, he chose one of his latest works, which is a collection of industrial-focused images. These visually appealing images can be just that, or they can give the audience the chance to revise their own views on what they perceive to be beautiful. A graphic vision on the mundane, an interesting look on the ordinary. For Renaat as a photographer, it’s important to focus on everyday objects and locations, familiar places that are passed by and overlooked.

Renaat Nijs is a photographer with a soft spot for design, photography, film, and ice cream. First studying architecture at PIKOH, and taking a year-long detour through Taiwan to study graphic design, he attained a master’s in multimedia design at LUCA, Genk. All this to eventually become a photographer.
He works as a freelance photographer for various magazines, is the brain behind dekleinering.be and can be found on Instagram serving a beautiful cocktail of architecture captured by his trained eye. Thanks to, or despite his many detours, he has developed a unique style. Both he and his photos set themselves apart with an authentic look through the lens. A candid view on many subjects such as architecture, urban compositions, food photography, portraits, and journalism.
