Fantômes Futur (Futur Ghosts), 2021 – 2022
« Look at an image from Hugo Janin’s Fantômes Futur series. The time we spend observing it, its colours will conceptually change from strange to bizarre: from “strange”, as outside our usual, conventional perception of our environment that we think we know, to “bizarre” as the result of an anger that diffuses into the image in the manner of a chromatography to make its colours vibrate.
Hugo Janin’s images strangle us from our comfortable representation of convention to create the emotion necessary for action. Everything is about to change. The images in the series Fantômes Futur offer us evanescent forms from which our own spectres are about to emerge. » Camille Boisaubert, editor.

Columba livia, 2020
Series of eleven photographs silkscreen printed on Velin Arches BFK Rives 300g/m² 120 x 80 centimetres. Signed and numbered, limited to 5 copies. In this work, the animal acquires the dual status of messenger and message, the first for its historical role and the second in the auspices it embodies. From the accident that freezes it into a pattern emerges a drawing containing a part of the expression of the universe; this image, oscillating between present and heritage, bears witness to a pivotal passage in which omens are outlined.
L’ombre d’un doute (Shadow of a doubt), 2020
“A thought for you during my journey, I can’t wait to tell you all about it. Thank you for the books, they accompany my walks well. A photo reminded me of our last conversation. You will understand”.
L’ombre d’un doute is a black and white edition of a hundred pages, printed at the end of 2020 and limited to 50 copies. It presents a body of photographs taken between 2018 and 2020 in Brussels and especially its outlying suburbs, as well as during walks and cycle rides in the French, Belgian, Dutch and Luxembourg countryside.
In 2018, I had the opportunity to do a residency at the Frans Masereel centre in Kasterlee. I went there by bike and it was like a journey of initiation. I didn’t know it yet but this residence marked the beginning of my photographic practice. I co-directed with Marie Theurier the edition Dislocation which concludes these two weeks of research, with Romain Zacchi, Harold Lechien, Johannes Unger, Matthias Gysen, Lieke Winter, Brend Geudens, Anke Cleiren, Leen Nuyts, Alexandra Majzel, Shan Jia and Stéphanie Muller.
Pour une esthétique de la sérigraphie artisanale (For an aesthetic of screenprinting), 2017
University research thesis in Fine Arts, this paper is a condensed of historical and technical knowledge on screenprinting, leading to an aesthetic analysis of the dinstinctive features of this medium. Based on numerous references as well as some of the author’s experiments, the book promotes screenprinting as an artistic technique in its own right, and not only as a means of reproduction.
