An Unexpected Lesson in Joy
14 March 2020. A strange calm descends upon the land. The Corona virus keeps everyone inside and paralyses public life. The rat race grinds to a halt. We don't know what’s coming our way. With the prospect of a long-term quarantine, I start a diary. I photograph familiar things: my home, my family. In this reduced world there is time, there is silence. And then spring comes.
‘An Unexpected Lesson in Joy’ is an intimate photo diary of the photographer, his wife and their twin daughters at home during the Corona lockdown in Belgium. 1 euro per sold book goes to Doctors Without Borders (MSF).
Self-published in collaboration with The Falabella Stable, 2020
