PARIS DANS MON GAND
Here you see some 'snapshots' made while wandering around in Ghent.
This as a gentle genuflection for the city that, so many years ago, adopted me unconditionally.
See it as a kind of a personal Ulysses, but expanded over many years instead of one day...
The title of this project refers to a quote by the Spanish Emperor Charles V (1519-1556) when bragging to the French king François I about his native city:
"Je mettrai [votre] Paris dans mon Gand".
There is a book in the make, coming in the fall together with a show.
