What we're about
Upcoming events (4)
Capturing the past and present for the future. Brussels shop-windows of traditional retail stores. There are still some 'old-style' traditional family owned shops around in Brussels. A look at their display can be like a look back for one or even two centuries. Those are hidden treasures from the photographers viewpoint. Unfortunately, this non-contemporary way may not attract enough prospective customers anymore or the seasoned owner may just retire. Most of those shops and displays will disappear forever very soon. Some may turn into nice, modern and authentic businesses, but unfortunately, some may turn into another another faceless x-marked, x-grill or x-eki. But before this happens, let's make a walk and discover those places. Document what we see in pictures to preserve it for the future. From outside and - with the owner's agreement from the inside. This activity will result in the first Photoresk community (e-)book, a documentary of traditional and old-fashioned shops in Brussels. However, this meetup will need some preparation and your assistance. Find out candidate places we should visit in your quarter and post it HERE (http://www.meetup.com/Photoresk/messages/boards/thread/46478622/) the forum. When around 50 locations are found, we will set-up meet ups in groups and go and take pictures while we are all sharing our experience.
You like to stroll through cites, take great pictures .... But .... have a second look at the buildings in you photos .... no, it's not Pisa but they still look as if they would collapse any moment? You have seen this? Then - this meetup is for you! You know what do do about it? Then, this meetup is also for you. Share your knowledge and help some cities to last ;-) ;-)
