In September 2010, the city of Leuven started the complete reconstruction of the “Maarschalk Foch plein”, a square in the center of the city. The result would look completely different and the construction works were planned to last at least 18 months. I had the idea to try to document the progress of these construction works through a photo-blog. I started the website in November 2010 and within the first 2 weeks, the site got mentioned in 2 national newspapers (De Standaard and Het Nieuwsblad), both on their website as in the printed edition.
This project used to live at Fochplein.be but since the construction works have finished, so is my photo project. I’ve moved most published photos to a page on this website.
During my teenage years I was a very active badminton players and while I don’t play anymore these days, I still love the sport. That’s why I’m on the organization team that puts together Belgium’s largest international tournament: the Yonex Belgian International. Our tournament is part of the Badminton Europe circuit and is considered among the best organized and most prestigious in the circuit by players, coaches and spectators. I take care of the website and social media updates, am one of the photographers and all round volunteer during the event.
