Ben Goossens: Exhibition "Surreal Photomontages" on the belgian coast

by Yvette Depaepe



Ben Goossens  has an invaluable sense for photographic art.
Since his time in Art school, he has spent the last 40 years perfecting his own surreal style of photography.  He previously realized his visions using traditional techniques, such as airbrushing, gouache and AD markers.

When digital processing became available, it allowed him to take his work to a completely new level.  Since then, he has won awards in almost all photo contests available, both in his home country Belgium and internationally. You can find his work worldwide in books and in magazines.

If you want to meet the “Magritte/Dali” in photography, don't miss his exhibition.

Restaurant Delissimo
Zeedijk 111-114 in Middelkerke (belgian coast)

Delissimo is open except on Wednesday from 12pm till 9pm.
During July and August open every day from 12pm till 9pm

If you are visiting the belgian coast, take this opportunity to admire the best of Ben's work.

Here's a small selection of his exhibited surreal montages.


“Ecological freedom”


“Through the frame”

“Golden herbarium”

“May nature overcome...”

“Make love, not war !”

And many more...

Stunning Ben!!! My compliments !
Ben, Al een fraaie samenvatting van je werk en als bewonderaar van je bijzonder mooie werk, wens ik je veel succes bij je tentoonstelling
Bedankt Theo!
congrats, Ben. wish you a great exhibit there and all the luck. greetings
Thanks Paulo...I don't know till now if it had success?
Wonderful collection of images and I wish I lived closer to see the exhibition in person. As Martin said, Ben's images seem like a window into what Dali might have done with modern tools. Imaginative, fantastical, creative, inspirational.
Much appreciated Greg:-)
