We can only observe their eyes and their face in the pictures they made of each other and see if we can find ourselves there, or someone else, or nobody, or everyone.

In the spring of 2009 I made a series of pictures of the sky above my house in Laeken, using a plastic Panoramix camera. 29 of these skies made it into a book.
