Strange Things Behind Belgian Windows is exactly what its title describes: a series of photos of the strange and intriguing objects people display behind their windows, for passers-by to look at. These tableaus will make you smile, or maybe even stop and reflect.
A stuffed fox, a portrait of Christ, a dusty Egyptian bust, a globe with gaudy colours… They are exhibited like treasures behind a glass screen, inviting you to wonder about the stories behind them, or about the daily lives going on behind the facade. Photographer Jean-Luc Feixa roamed the streets and avenues of Brussels for months, with his camera in hand, curious about the hidden spots and the unique colours of his new hometown. At first, Jean-Luc saw Belgium as a slightly greyish country, but thanks to this photo project he let himself be surprised by his new home’s diversity. In his photos he manages to catch that typically Belgian oddity that’s so hard to put into words: colourful, quirky and a bit surrealistic.
Jean-Luc Feixa hails from France and moved to Belgium in 2013.
He’s a photographer with more than 15 years of experience; he worked as a press photographer and journalist, before deciding to focus on his own photo projects.
