PhotoBrussels Festival is the unmissable event for photography in Brussels. Not limited to a single venue, the festival allows visitors to discover different facets of the Belgian capital while exploring photography.

Some highlights include:

Brussels African Art Center, Derrick Ofosu Boateng (shown above) an artist on the rise. His photographs, taken and edited with an iPhone, offer a stylized look at vibrant Ghana. A perspective that Boateng developed thanks to the love he has for his hometown, Accra. These works are sometimes surreal and sometimes dreamlike.

Type “happiness” into a search engine, and you will get hundreds of thousands of occurrences. […]. It must be admitted that the notion of happiness plays a role

now a fundamental role in understanding that we make of ourselves and of the world.”
