Framed: Mathieu Van Assche

“Nearly every day, I pass through the Marolles/Marollen neighbourhood, a popular and historical part of Brussels. I am always struck and drawn by the soul which emanates from the cobblestones of its lanes, the bricks of its old façades, and from the people who live there. Despite the gentrification that the neighbourhood is undergoing, it’s as if this little world still has old stories to tell us.”
