This gallery starts with a lie… or maybe half a lie… Antwerp isn’t really my city, I just moved here. And I’m not sure if I’m ready to integrate, but that’s another story.
But so I’m living in Antwerp. I have always found it hard to photograph the place where I’m living, because sometimes we have difficulties seeing the beauty in what’s so familiar. Here it was different, it’s the place where I’m living but it’s not familiar at all. I had to be fast to get objective shots of a place I would soon call home.
The day I went out it was overcast. It was one of those days when you knew you’d be sorry if you didn’t take a rain jacket, even though it didn’t rain all day.
The first title I had for this gallery was “time for stormy weather”. But I changed afterwards, it looked like a very monochrome trip, even though what it say was colourful.
It could be the weather, the greyness of Belgium or all in my head. It doesn’t matter.
