BRUSSELS - Something's brewing in Brussels. Photographer Kurt Deruyter has been working for years on a project in the Brussels neighbourhoods of Molenbeek and Cureghem. Together with De Standaard-journaliste Sarah Vankersschaever, he has spent the past few months looking for a new perspective on these neighbourhoods, where chaos, entrepreneurship and cosmopolitanism dominate the streetscape.
They came back with a series of stories of migrants and how they try to live out their lives in these neighbourhoods. A surprising, penetrating look into a world nearby, in the middle of our capital city, which we do not know at all.
