WILLY KESSELS / photographer

"Willy Kessels (1898-1974), who is considered as one of the most important Belgian representatives of a new, ‘modernistic’ photography which came to the foreground from the end of the 1920’s onward. His body of works is particularly illustrative of the practise of the professional photographer in the 1930’s." (This is from a showing of his works in Belgium) He has an unusual body of work, including many female nudes and scenes from a European nudist colony from the 1930's as well as architecture and life scenes in Belgium.
