Environmental portraiture

One of my favourite types of photography is environmental portraiture.

Here in a small chapel on the road to Meetkerke, my wife Magda, contemplates her family history which is intimately tied to West Flanders.

She has a story to tell about nearly every village in this area and knows the roads like the back of her hand.

This particular chapel stands like an island in the middle of an intersection between two small country lanes. I'll upload a picture of the outside soon.

One of the reasons I like environmental portraiture is because you get to share and learn about people lives and history. It's often a fascinating journey.

Cheers,
