The charming city of Namur and its citadel have much to offer. The photography exhibition Vincent was here is on display at the citadel until 6 March and there is a lot more to see in this Walloon capital of Belgium.

Vincent was here in Terra Nova, Citadel Namur Belgium

Following in Van Gogh's footsteps

A Vincent was here exhibition with 37 large photos is exhibited in three rooms of Terra Nova in the Citadel of Namur, Belgium

Vincent was here is a personal visual project by Karin Borghouts, on the intersection between photography and painting and full of references to the paintings of Vincent van Gogh. On the one hand, she visited all the places where Vincent stayed, and on the other, she reconstructed and photographed a large number of his still lifes.


The book of photographs Vincent was here by Karin Borghouts is published by Gallery Ronny Van de Velde. Available on the spot or online .

All photos from the exhibition are for sale in a limited edition
