Habitat

Our countryside (in Belgium as well as in a many other western countries) is monopolized by one specific type of houses called ‘clésur porte’ (turnkey) (def: Urban prefab cluster of similar forms implanted in the landscape without any effort of integration). The cycle ‘Habitat’ throws a look at this type of ‘architecture’. The concept of protection and stereotyped block is pushed to its extremes (similar to our withdrawal into on ourselves and our formated lifes).  


This series functions as a collection in the tradition of the Düsseldorf School of Photography, but also as a critical investigation of the modern western lifestyle.
