Yesterday some construction sites in Belgium where open to a public visit. As I once spent a large part of my day there, I decided to visit the site of Bell, the old Alcatel Bell site in the south of Antwerp.

After the company’s relocation to the center of the city behind the central station, the site was handed over to the city of Antwerp which decided to bring it’s entire back-office to one central place.
The triangular building which in the past was filled in the middle with extra buildings, was now emptied again in the middle to allow an underground parking to be built in the middle.

All the floors were stripped (as the building was also riddled with asbestos this was severely needed) and thus in some parts the magnificent steel and brick ceilings are exposed:

The rest of the pictures can be found here.

Ria Verhaeghe - Bib
This afternoon I went to the Antwerp Provincial Museum of Photography. The main purpose was to watch the memorial exhibit of Patrick De Spiegelaere. As expected there was a crowd to see the exhibition, but it was worth it.

On the top floor there is a new kind of exhibition around portraits called FACE ON. In co-operation with Getty Images and HP you can add your own shots, locally by printing them out from a memory stick on the local HP printing machines or through a facebook group (which I couldn’t find).

But the most striking was the collection at the floor level guest exhibits: Ria Verhaeghe‘s Provisoria. She collects pictures from magazines, newspapers, internet, … and categorises them in all kind of ways. The categorised pictures then end up in notebooks she wraps in the same newspaper the pictures came out of. Inside she transforms the pictures and frames them in chalk paper.

sunday zoo visit

This weekend we visited the Planckendael Zoo with my nearly 3 year old nephew.

Off course I couldn’t withstand bringing my camera and shoot some pictures. I admit, most of them are more about getting the (or at least some) animal in the frame.

At least the last day of the summer weather ( or what had to pass off as it) made it an agreeable day.

Decide for yourself.

The Mirror of Fashion
Today I found the most particular small booklet called “The Mirror of Fashion“.

On the title page inside it reads :

The Mirror of Fashion.
Adorned with scissor cuts by Ada Steiner.
Verses by “Presto.”.

It is brought to the world by the London and Boston “De Medici Society” in 1927!

The booklet itself is filled with riddles and poetry by “Presto” and the images are apparently pressed versions of scissor cuts. A Charming little thing.
