Visiting the interesting photographic museum in Antwerp, Belgium, I came across a photobook of portraits. The photographer, Jacob Reis, had presented 100 photographs of 100 different people all born in different years during the last century.
The photographs are in colour and the printing in some cases rather over-exaggerates this which does not help the portraits. However, the overall effect is impressive with most people being portrayed in their environment which in most cases means the home.
A fascinating record of Belgians that illustrates people from many different walks of life.
