“I arrived in Belgium with a one-way ticket from Italy back in December 2007. This month I celebrate my tenth year as a Brussels resident, and creating this short series of images felt like the perfect way to wrap up this decade and walk into the next one. A couple of weeks ago I moved into my new photography studio in the neighbourhood of Zavel/Sablon. The series Ommegang is the result of the first explorations around my new ‘home’.”
