Vensterbank beauty – Molenbeek

Every thursday morning I go to the Molenbeek markets which have a beautiful range of fresh vegetables, fruit and herbs along with synthetic leggings in multiple hues and cheap kitchen equipment. Molenbeek is an often maligned suburb of Brussels, but one of my favourite places in the city to walk, unexpected and idiosyncratic beauty is the reward for wandering its’ streets.

The windowsills of Belgium, spaces of strange forms and a prickly bare beauty. Since moving to Brussels I have been photographing these sometimes elegant sometimes awkward arrangements, so much so that now a ‘Vensterbanken’ archive is part of my ongoing documentation of plants among people, or ‘where people and plants touch’ as my friend Gwendolyn put it the other day. It is the awkward meetings that are the most important.
