“BELGIAN PHOTOGRAPHER TIM TRONCKOE ANNOUNCES FIRST ART BOOK AND EXHIBITION FEATURING GHOST, SLAYER, NIGHTWISH AND MANY MORE” BOOK AND EXHIBITION SEPTEMBER 28, GHENT (BELGIUM) PRESALES BOOK JULY 26 @ WWW.TIMTRONCKOE.COM Belgian international music and portrait photographer Tim Tronckoe, is about to release his first coffee table photography book that focuses on classical portraits of musicians in hard rock and metal, portrayed in a way that has never been seen before: ‘PORTRAITS’
Have you ever wondered what Simone Simons (Epica) would look like as Queen Elizabeth I, or Alissa White-Gluz (Arch Enemy) as Marie-Antoinette? What if Caravaggio was to meet the guys in Slayer? What if Rembrandt was commissioned to portray Cardinal Copia? For the past three years, Tim Tronckoe has worked in secret, capturing his friends in the style of the Old Masters to answer to those questions with ‘PORTRAITS’.
‘PORTRAITS’ makes a perfect addition to any fan’s collection. A photography book that brings you custom made couture and the likes of Kerry King (Slayer), Myles Kennedy (Alter Bridge & Slash), Sharon den Adel (Within Temptation) and Tarja Turunen like you’ve never seen them before.
‘PORTRAITS’ is a 180 page full colour photography book, beautifully designed with a linen cover and presented in a personalised carton board case. A limited run of only 1,000 copies, ‘PORTRAITS’ is a must have for any fan of hard rock, photography and books. Get yours from Tim’s official website www.timtronckoe.com.
Tim has always felt passionately about supporting good causes with his work; with ‘PORTRAITS’ he is focusing on Psychosenet: an independent organisation helping those struggling with mental health, guiding people towards the right kind of help and trying to overcome the long waiting lists in health care. While working on the book, Tim lost his close friend Jill Janus: “Her death made me even more aware of the fact that mental health is still such a taboo. It was another sign that I hàd to show my support to an organisation that fights for those who experience life as a struggle, day after day.”
‘PORTRAITS’ can be preordered at www.timtronckoe.com now. The official release is planned for September 28.
The exhibition takes place at the beautiful Drongenhofkapel in the heart of Ghent, Belgium, from September 28 until October 12. Free entry.
