I discovered Beijing in 2007 when I went there on a college trip as part of my studies at the École Supérieure des Arts de St-Luc.

I then had to wait until September 2009, after graduating, before I could return and this time I went there the long way round, on the Trans-Siberian Railway. In the company of my childhood friend, I let myself be guided by this mythical train through the heart of Russia, Mongolia and China. I captured numerous unusual discoveries and encounters to turn them into precious memories.

These pictures have been exhibited in September 2010 at the T.A.G. Gallery in Brussels and in November 2013 at the 23. Kustmesse in the Frauenmuseum Bonn, Germany.
