    Summer Hot Spots: The Annual Antwerp Fair Sinksenfoor

    Every year, sometime in the second half of May, the annual Antwerp fair takes place on the biggest open space in town. As soon as workers start building and the attractions arise, the excitement rises with it. By the time they are done, there's a new village built in town: the Sinksenfoor has arrived and is ready to stay for 6 weeks straight. The perfect place to spend those first hot summer days of the year!

    ReeLocations: Medieval Castle Cortewalle

    SoLocations: Abandoned Town, Graffiti Heaven!

    Doel is a small village in Belgium, on the border of the river Scheldt. It is an old village, with a rich history. Crumbling under the pressure of their ever-expanding neighbour, Antwerp Harbour, it is now heading towards a devastating end. But for as long as it is still there, it will be my favorite place for a lomowalk.

    The Beauty of Found Films

    After reading a bunch of articles about 'forgotten films,' I finally got a chance of my own. After buying a new analog toy I discovered a used film inside. I decided to get it developed and I got to tell you, I'm really pleased with the results I got from the lab.

    Analogue Urban Exploring in Dadipark

    Together with a small group of friends, I went to the abandoned amusement park 'Dadipark', which closed almost 10 years ago after a series of accidents in which a 9-year-old boy lost his arm. Although more and more people find their way to this park as it is an open secret, it is still quite intact. It was freaky and fascinating. And definitely worth a visit.
