A Portrait of Brussels

A Portrait of Brussels

Brussels, a city that grew without a master plan, is difficult to classify. Evidence of its tumultuous past mingles with that of a variety of epochs. This book traces the history of the city, presenting a delicately nuanced portrait, revealing its paradoxes and demonstrating its very special ambience. By his photos Vincent Merckx illustrates the sites, often very well known, from unexpected angles and has sought the often forgotten beauty that Brussels conceals. The author, Pierre Loze, in his approach to the history, the artistic legacy and the urban development of the city adds a subjective analysis highlighting the ambitions of the Capital of Europe and the psychological background that characterizes it. Text in English, French, Dutch and German.
