Limburg documents traces of everyday life in the north-easternmost province of Belgium. Based on brief, anecdotal news reports of rather trivial events, highly detailed images were produced. The reports were compiled from the regional section of the local newspaper known as Het Belang van Limburg between November 2019 and April 2022.
The majority of these articles were pictureless, or relied on widely used stock images. If a story came accompanied by an image, it tended to have a fleeting nature. In Limburg the events, the textual reports and theirvisual representation enter into a new dialogue by capturing them with the slowness and high detail of medium to large format cameras. The images are often produced a week, a few months, or sometimes a year after the facts.
