ALL IS NOT QUIET ON THE HOME FRONT

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

ALL IS NOT QUIET ON THE HOME FRONT

This very 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. Our comfortable daily routine was overwhelmed by the corona-virus and omnipresent face-masks.

BRUSSELS EN ROUTE EXPO IN THE METRO

From September 16, 2018 until January 1, 2019 in the Brussels-Capital Region.

Visitors, travelers, and random passers-by can could? view the images day-in, day-out. After a while, the majority of the travelers won’t would not? even spare this visual distraction a second glance, as the almighty smartphone will would? beckon their attention. In my opinion, this closed 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 an exploration through the city’s 19 municipalities.

It documents how I experience the city: vibrant and desolate, cheerless and grey, but also colorful and warm.

After sunset, the city transforms itself. Daylight makes way for a wide array of artificial lights, colors fading to dark orange or blue-green.

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

Brussels is the number one demonstration capital of Europe. Three out of every 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 which 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.
