" Battlefield "

As a photographer I am interested in the ambiguity of the spaces we live in as well as the ways we experience them. Each kind of place/space I chose to work in: -museums, offices spaces, the periphery of the city, etc.- has it’s own language, is ruled by it’s own codes.

Battlefield explores an inhabited area off the side of the highway, found on the outskirts of Brussels. The high density of urban networks gradually disintegrate, creating a sense of reality that seems to be slipping out of our hands.
