Edge lands

by Joey Heirman


Edge lands – zones that are neither urban nor rural, buth rather an undefined zone between the two.

With this project, I want to share an insight in how people live in the Flemish communities around Brussels. How do they cope with the metropolis nearby?

My story guides you along the borders of Brussels, portraying an area that is no longer rural, but isn’t urban either. An area that really wants to be both.
