A rumor (rumeur) is an ensemble of noises, sounds or news coming from a place whose origin is unknown or uncertain, and of which the veracity cannot be proven. It spreads, repeats & transform itself with time and with word of mouth which promote it.
Fotofabrik Bln-Bxl has invited us to exhibit some work together. Therefore we started playing a game of Ping-Pong between the two cities – Brussels & Berlin : a first picture was sent, bringing another one in reaction, and so on.
This is how, over time this whole process lead to this selection of photographs.
