Every year, Italy’s enormous artistic and natural heritage attracts more than 70 million tourists from all over the world. Rome, Milan and Venice are among the top destinations. Louis De Belle’s series Crowd reframes passive tourism by portraying isolated travelers on the active role of using mobile phones and cameras. Shot with a very fast exposure time and a portable flash, the images render the subjects out of context, almost “wandering in the dark”.

Louis De Belle is a photographer living and working in Milano, Italy.

After graduating at Politecnico di Milano (BA) and Bauhaus–Universität Weimar (MFA), he moved to Berlin and started working with curators, designers and architects. Since then he has maintained a practice between commissioned works and personal projects including books, exhibitions as well as lectures and workshops. His projects have been exhibited in galleries, festivals and museums including Triennale di Milano, KINDL Center for Contemporary Art Berlin, Les Rencontres d’Arles, Offprint at Paris Photo, Tieranatomisches Theater in Berlin, The D&AD Awards, Milano Design Week, Malmö Fotobiennal, Copenhagen Photo Festival, Eindhoven Design Week and The New York Photo Festival.
