The Voice of the Countryside

The exhibition titled Rural People is the open-minded account of a journey of two thousand wonderfully slow kilometres through the countryside. In all seasons, with an old tractor and cattle trailer as a recording studio. Photographer and raconteur Jelle Vermeersch returned to his roots and made portraits of and had conversations with people living in the country. People whose little stories are inextricably linked with the greater history of the countryside. He saw more than just beauty ... The result of his journey is a stunning patchwork in words and pictures of different truths.
