Some count the moments while driving. ‘Ice, waterfall’ is one of those images taken while on a pointless drive. Bet you are familiar with this feeling? Being on the road and amazed. There is this one-second thought process connected to one important question: should I stop the car? The answer is always yes. As Tessa stood next to my parked vehicle, with only a busy road between me these icy shapes, shaping patterns, Tessa couldn’t do anything but just stand still.

This is Tessa Van Thielen. After studying Photography (KASK, Antwerp) & Fine Arts (Konstfack, Stockholm), Tessa began to use the medium of photography as a tool for meditation. Tessa wants to slow down & breathe while capturing the unexpected. The photographs are the results of hikes, long walks & pointless drives. There exists a balance between wild nature and human presence and there doesn’t exist a hierarchy between these two. Tessa often falls for an esthetic experience, a moment of standing still. In fact, the photographs are celebrating ‘slow travel’, or better said ‘slow living’, as they all represent moments or places that might stay unnoticed. By seeking less excitement and by appreciating the small details & coincidences, Van Thielen wants to create a simple yet beautiful experience for the viewer, to take a breath and wonder.
