Totems of Peace
On the morning of March 22nd, 2016, Brussels was hit with the deadliest act of terrorism in its history. Three bombs, two at the airport and one in the metro station, killed 32 civilians and left hundreds injured.
As soon as I heard about the bombing I rushed to Maelbeek Metro station.
I saw the dismay in people’s faces and the horror of victims being evacuated.
Documenting the aftermath of the bombs was powerful and tragic, but it didn’t capture the resiliency of the city’s people.
The last day before the remains of the giant flowerbed were going to be cleaned up, I photographed those last remaining objects on a black clothe.
The series was published in several magazines.
