Royal Greenhouses at Laeken

The Royal Greenhouses and Gardens of Laeken Belgium are open to the public from 15 April to 8 May 2022. Definitely one of the most beautiful places Karin Borghouts was allowed to photograph since 2010. The book The Royal Greenhouses at Laeken was published by BAI in 2019 in four languages. New is a booklet about the special plants and trees compiled by Irene Smets and with photos by Karin Borghouts.

Because of Vincent in Breda

Van Gogh is alive and well. His art – as well as the artist himself – still inspires new and innovative artworks. This is what the exhibition Because of Vincent at the Stedelijk Museum Breda is showcasing. The exhibition shows highlights from the museum’s collection as well as works produced by the artist-in-residence programme of the Van GoghHuis in Zundert, birthplace of the artist. The new book Vanwege Vincent and Karin's photography book VINCENT WAS HERE are available at both locations or online.

Paris Impasse

On 4 June 2022, the first solo exhibition Paris Impasse will open at Le Musée de la Photographie in Charleroi, Belgium. To look forward to!

Paris Impasse gives a view of Paris as it has never been shown before. A city of dead-end alleys photographed without any human presence.

The photography book Paris Impasse, in a design by Jean-Michel Meyers, was nominated at Les Rencontres de la Photographie Arles, and is published by Snoeck Publishers. Order online here.
