Le Petit Rempart


Out of stock



Le Petit Rempart is a poetic and social project by Belgian photographer Vincen Beeckman with the residents of the emergency center Le Petit Rempart (Samu Social) in Brussels between February 2019 and February 2020.

“Every time I come it’s like nothing has moved. As if I had done Pause and then Play. Everything is quiet except for the more boisterous children. The soup is coming. It is the meal. The days are like a permanent restart. A kind of long wait. When there is no movement the light goes out. We are all in the dark. Then one gets up or another. He makes movements with his arms. The motion detector reacts and the light comes back on. ” V. Beeckman
