Alexey Shlyk (b. 1986, Minsk, Belarus ) is a photographer based in Antwerp, Belgium. Shlyk’s approach is installation-based, with the frequent use of staged photography, both in the construction of an image and its presentation. His work often revolves around creativity, the perception of an image, and the relationship between the physical and virtual realms of an image space. In recognition for his work, he has received several nominations and awards including: Carte Blanche Paris Photo (laureate 2017), LensCulture Emerging Talents Award (winner 2017) and most recently, a COVID-19 work grant (together with Ben Van den Berghe) by FOMU Antwerp.
