ASYLUM CENTRE KNESSELARE

With all the recent commotion about asylum seekers in Europe, I was excited with the opportunity to meet some of them in person. The asylum centre in Knesselare, which houses mainly teenagers who arrived in Belgium without their parents, asked me to get up close for a photo documentary.

For 4 days I walked among them to capture the mood and shoot some portraits. And although their situation is hard (constantly checking their smartphone for news), I also noticed friendship and the willingness to make the best of everything together with the incredible team working there.

ABOUT FOOLS WITH DREAMS

Hello, I'm Maarten.

With Fools With Dreams I travel the world by trading my services as a pro photographer for a warm place to sleep, some food and a (zeppelin) ride to the next location with those who are following their dreams, those who are called fools by those who don’t know.
