Paris Impasse

The photo exhibition Paris Impasse in Charleroi Belgium, shows the city like never been pictured before. A labyrinth of dead-end streets. Furthermoren the photography museum of Charleroi shows three exhibitions and the permanent collection, well worth a day's visit.

The photo book Paris Impasse was nominated at Les Rencontres de la photographie Arles 2019, and is published by Snoeck Publishers in 2020.

Fotoboek A Painter's House

A Painter's House pictures the house of the artist Marten Melsen (1870-1947). It is something of a miracle that this house has been preserved until now. The interiors and objects show a time that is now past, but still recalls memories. This photography book contains some 70 photos by Karin Borghouts, is published by Snoeck Publishers in a design by Jean-Michel Meyers and with text in Dutch, French and English by Jan H. Melsen, grandson of the painter.

A Painter's House is a personal project of Karin Borghouts. This will be the second book in the same series as THE HOUSE, published in 2021.

Release on September 11, 2022 Open Monument Day.
