The Apartment, Graanmarkt 13 | From the book ‘A white facade, five floors and an open door.’


I am happy to share one of my most exciting projects to date. I had the honour of shooting all of the photographs for ‘A white facade, five floors, and a open door’ - a book telling the story of Graanmarkt13: A concept store, restaurant and apartment in Antwerp. The title is large format, 256 pages & bound in traditional book cloth. Created by Cereal. Designed by Studio Faculty. Published by Lannoo. Special thanks to the team at Graanmarkt13 - particularly Ilse, Tim and Bob; and to my colleagues Rosa, Richard & Richard.
