What? Since March 2020, the Brussels photographer Sophie Lenoir has been touring the city with her camera. She has been photographing the people of Brussels on their doorstep, which has become a kind of frontier for all of us. By reading the testimonies of the people photographed, we also see the impact of the lockdown on daily life through the different seasons. The series now includes nearly 500 portraits of lockdown. In this exhibition, 45 portraits of the inhabitants of Ixelles are highlighted, combined with some images of Ixelles that evoke the context in which the series was made: an abandoned city.
