Recollecting Landscapes: re-photography, memory and transformation

Recollecting Landscapes: herfotografie, geheugen en transformatie‘Recollecting Landscapes’ uses documentary rephotography for research on urbanism, landscape, heritage, spatial planning, infrastructure, etc. It observes the evolution of landscapes until today. Over the course of a century, an exceptional photographic collection was composed that covers the northern parts of the Belgian territory.

Four consecutive series of pictures reveal the exact same landscapes photographed by four photographers at four moments during more than a century: Jean Massart (1904)Georges Charlier (1980), Jan Kempenaers (2004) en Michiel De Cleene (2014)Since 2006, two books and two exhibitions were produced as well as a website with all the photos, texts and detailed information.
