A personal testimony about my family-bubble during the corona pandemic

ALL IS NOT QUIET ON THE HOME FRONT

This personal visual story is about my family who, just like millions of other people, is trying to cope with this new and confusing reality.

An enemy, invisible to the naked eye, has hit the whole world hard. The ordinary certainties were wiped out and replaced by the all-encompassing corona-virus, and the omnipresent face-masks

BRUSSELS EN ROUTE

During a year and a half, I travelled with every bus, tram, and metro line at least once, from terminal to terminal. The images and text show a cross section of Brussels, while also managing to give a brief glimpse into the lives of the mysterious fellow passengers that cross our path every day. © Bram Penninckx

BRUSSELS EN ROUTE EXPO IN THE METRO

From 16/09/2018 until 16/01/2019 in the Brussels-Capital Region.

Visitors, travellers, and random passers-by can view the images day-in, day-out. After a while, the majority of the travellers won’t even spare this visual distraction a second glance, as the almighty screen will beckon their attention. In my opinion, this would close the circle.

How well can you really know a big city that you have lived and worked in for years? ‘Brusselse scènes, Bruxelles en scène‘ is the result of a journey of exploration through the city’s 19 municipalities.

The different chapters of the photo documentary show how the photographer experiences the city.

After sunset, the city transforms. Daylight makes way for all manner of artificial lights, the colours fading to dark orange or blue-green.

The action of the scene fades away, the actors disappear to the background, but the traces remain, and the stage becomes visible.

Brussels is the number one demonstration capital of Europe. Three out of four days there is a demonstration going on somewhere in the city. Some demonstrators come from far and wide to shout their opinions from the rooftops.

Besides demonstrations, countless events are organised that don’t always get the media attention they deserve. These picnics, carnivals, parties, Facebook events, and processions tell a much happier and friendlier story of the city.
