inspiration: Bieke Depoorter
johbont in de Kunsthal and we saw an exhibition of photographer
Bieke Depoorter It was about a special project: OU MENYA.
She travelled with a little note from livingroom to livingroom in Russia. The note said: "I am looking for a place to spend the night. Do you know people who would have a bed, or a couch? I don’t need anything in particular, and I have a sleeping-bag. I prefer not to stay in a hotel, because I don’t have a lot of money and because I want to see the way people live in Russia. Could I stay at your place, perhaps? Thank you very much for your help!"
She didn't speak the language and encountered many Russian families, they had conversations with hands and feet. She made a really beautiful photoreportage!
