APE, 2023


“Desert Spirals” by Sybren Vanoverberghe presents a new series of photographs taken in the captivating Moroccan desert. The images portray artifacts, shelters, and ancient engravings amidst the vast landscape. They capture the transient structures of human presence, built with materials often repurposed or left behind.

Vanoverberghe’s artistic approach delves into traces of a recent or forgotten past, capturing the essence of the desert’s nothingness. The photographs create a compelling visual journey that merges contemporary scenes with ancient engravings.

Through photography, Vanoverberghe captures these traces with evocative associations and powerful compositions. “Desert Spirals” offers a glimpse into the enigmatic beauty and timeless nature of the seemingly barren desert.
