Ives Maes grew up in "Sunville," a free translation of Zonhoven in Limburg. After his brother's suicide, he returned to his hometown with a camera and a supply of roll film whose expiration date had accidentally expired. The haphazard cadence and color shifts in the photographs he took during his walks suggest an indefinable time. He combined these photographs with images from his family album and from the municipality's historical archives. For six consecutive seasons, Maes took photographs of his native village, until a partial solar eclipse put a symbolic end to this project. Sunville is an intimate journey through the memories of Ives Maes, in which he simultaneously explores the periphery of the photographic medium.
