Titus Simoens - 11:00 Am


'11:00 am' describes and shows the weekly appointments between Alfons and photographer Titus Simoens. Alfons is an 81-year-old man who lives in Ghent, close to the house of Simoens. From October 2017 till May 2018 Simoens visited Alfons every week at 11:00 am. They talked and told stories. Simoens wrote down Alfons’s stories and photographed him during his visits. Alfons decided to cook for Simoens every time he payed him a visit. It became their weekly ritual. '11:00 am' is a multi-layered project, that provokes the reader and viewer to question the meaning of a story. It discusses the position of a photographer when creating new work. Published by Art Paper Editions (Ghent).
