International Monuments photographic experience

Since 1998, Brussels-Capital Region has been participating in the International Monuments Photographic Experience. Started by Catalonia in 1992, as part of European Heritage Days, the purpose of this project is to develop a personal creative approach to the exploration of architectural heritage in young people, via photography. A lot of European countries are currently taking part.

The competition is aimed at all Brussels-based schools, irrespective of year or discipline. The principle behind the International Monuments Photographic Experience is simple: over several weeks, students photograph one or more monuments or sites of heritage value. The best shots will be chosen by a jury and displayed, during the Heritage Days, in all countries participating in the project.

Starting in September, discover the 25 photographs selected by the Brussels-Capital Region this year under the canopies of Halles Saint-Géry.

Exhibition with free admission running from 1 September until 29 November 2017 at Halles Saint-Géry, Place Saint-Géry/Sint-Goriksplein, Brussels.

Organisation: Department of Monuments and Sites of the Brussels-Capital Region
