Dejeuner sur asphalt

It was some time ago I did this assignment on the ‘Picnic the streets’ in Brussels.

As my series of last year was nominated for the Belfius photography award I thought it would be nice to shoot the people picnicking for a car free city center in Brussels as top shots again.It’s just fascninating to see how little (just a cropped topshot) can say so much about these people, what they wear, what they eat, who they are, and why they pic nic on the street instead of the lawn in the park. The is on the city center mainroad normally crowded with cars, while in Belgium and Brussels, a car still is everything (for most people).

And that is just why I don’t own a car and go to most assignments by bicycle or public transport!-)
