Presentation by Delpire :

"  This publication brings together the work of two major Belgian artists.

In a unique approach, the photographer and the writer are offering their vision of Belgium. The vivid colors and the poignant gaze of the former merging with the poetry of the latter, they are offering us a powerful piece, where their sensitivities meet.

« Belgium is probably the European country that was most rapidly « Americanized » after the war, hence the power of this banality (…). Beautiful, ugly, banality of the beautiful, beauty of ugliness. These contradictions are also my own. » »
