Whisper the dust
“What happens when nothing happens other than the weather, people, cars, and clouds?”. This question, posed by George Perec found me at a time when I couldn't stop myself from thinking about big political questions. But this small line and the following 50 pages of “An Attempt at Exhausting a Place in Paris” pushed me to shift my interest to the mundane and unnoticed, seeking to capture the moments that we often overlook. Following Perec’s method, for three days, I stationed myself on the terrace of a small café in Brussels. By focusing simultaneously my mind and telephoto lens on the trivial and seemingly futile I hoped to uncover the essential truths that lie within the everyday moments of life.
