Further into the night

Some days ago one reader left a comment (a pretty rare thing to happen, I have to say) on the post about Gilbert Fastenaekens, pointing out the similar b&w line of work shown by Dutch artist Awoiska van der Molen, where dark alleys and empty corners are filled with some presence that indeed remebers the urban mysteries by the Belgian photographer I recently praised here.

Un lettore pochi giorni fa ha lasciato un commento (cosa piuttosto rara, devo dire) al post su Gilbert Fastenaekens, sottolineando l'affinità con il lavoro in bianco e nero di Awoiska van der Molen, dove strade buie ed angoli deserti sono abitati da una qualche presenza che ricorda il lavoro dell'artista belga, qui peraltro ampiamente lodato.

After reading your post about Gilbert Fastenaekens, I also wrote about him on The Night Photography Blog (http://gorillasites.blogspot.com). Awoiska is another great find (thank you). I'll written a post about him, as well, which will show up on June 13th.

Nice to see my photoworks uphere. Thank you for the attention. I also admire Fastenaekens work. And another important great Belgium photographer: Dirk Braeckman. Greetings A. van der Molen
