John Van Oers

Belgium, 1967
Chance as strategy. Someone once described the term ‘serendipity’ as looking for a pin in a haystack and coming out with the farmer's daughter. In a similar fashion and with a dash of intelligent humour, John Van Oers sets out to find the surprise in the process, the pearl in the shell, the unexpected yet marvelous twist in the story.
