Antwerp is a city that does not follow trends, but sets them – according to the photographer about ‘his’ Antwerp. Besides the usual suspects, there are countless new locations and hidden treasures to discover. Interspersed with images of the many historical pearls and other attractions of Antwerp, such as the MAS, the zoo, the railway station, the Cathedral of Our Lady and the harbour, this book becomes a photographic anthology of a city that leaves no-one unmoved. This wonderful impression is also a tribute to George van Cauwenbergh, father of the photographer, city guide and professional antwerp resident who, through a series of successful books, taught his fellow citizens to look lovingly at their city once again.
This book tells the story of a human adventure, that of the photographer Julius Mwelu, a talented and generous Kenyan, who was born in the valley of Mathare and has survived there. This part of Nairobi is one of the immense slums that make the Kenyan capital a permanent social scandal.
