Hi, I'm Marc SMEETS.
Born in 1961 I live in Maasmechelen (Belgium) close to Maastricht (Netherlands).
I've studied photography at the Maasmechelen Kunstacademie and at the Syntra-PXL in Genk.
In my pictures I try to capture and express the emotions I feel when seeing places, objects or landscapes. A;o. things, I'm attracted by the industrial heritage of the former coal mining industry in my own town and the Maas-Rhine-Ruhr region. In my serial 'Industrial Heritage' I want to express the emotions of the aftermath of the closure of the mining industry of this region.
I hope you'll enjoy my photos...I do look forward to your comment.
