THE PROJECT

The goal ?  Bringing you guys a unique exhibition combined with a  photobook/catalogue on today's Belgian Jazz scene.

 

THE CONCEPT


"BIG JAZZ IN LITTLE BELGIUM - a year gone by in the Belgian Jazz scene" is a photo project we're I combine my passion for photography with my love for jazz music. 

 

From Django to Toots ... Belgium has an incredibly rich jazz history. And its  vivid jazz scene keeps on making history as we speak with its current artists and musicians.  With this photobook we'll focus on today's Belgian Jazz scene.

 

The exhibition in combination with the book will bring you more than 200 unique moments from the Belgian Jazz scene, captured in a 1 year time frame  (2018-2019).

 

Foremost : it's a photo project. So the main goal is to bring you a selection of high quality photos. Original, stunning, tender, intimate, passionate … everything goes.

 

The general theme is the Belgian Jazz Scene as we know it today. Established old timers (and I say this with the utmost respect !), upcoming young guns and new talent … doesn't matter. If he/she/they performed in these 12 months and I got a great picture , they can make the final selection.

 

What I'm trying to say is … it's not a documentary project pure sang. The Belgian Jazz Scene is too big, too comprehensive to capture in 200 photos. That means some artists will be in the book and some not … Doesn't have a thing to do with their music or status … it all comes down to : did I get a good picture ? 

 

 

The ultimate goal is to give you, the reader,  that real jazzy feeling that sometimes is warm and deep, sometimes nostalgic and sad, or angry, or funny, or ...  

 

 

So don't expect just 200 pictures of jazz musicians playing their instrument.  We'll have those, of course, but also much more.  We're looking for those little moments in between sets, before a gig, during a sound check, an interaction between 2 artists, ...
