De Groene Briel
De Groene Briel is a working class neigborhood in Ghent, Belgium. Most of the city's locals are unfamiliar with the area. However, some inhabitants are residing in ‘De Groene Briel’ for over a decade. Others just arrived in Belgium.
And most of them don't know each other.
After organizing a weekly coffee meet up, the participating inhabitants are closer to each other. We wish to highlight their stories through portraiture.
This project is part of a collaboration with Francesca Vesprini (drawing), Nine Lodewyckx (drawing) and Iris Kelly Kuntskes (photography). and made in request of ‘Grafitti VZW’ and ‘Stad Gent’.
