My series of 3 pictures represent a little view of my vision on the week before election day in my home town “Lierde”. Whole europe trembled with nervosity, till the day itself, as the storm of the voters flushed over (some) nations.
Picture 1 shows my crucial point at the voting cabin, where the colours of central and central right are already starting to dominate the room. Those named groups have had their victory this time in Belgium, poorfully for them i voted for something different with an outstanding plan to proclaim our future safe.
My name is Wouter Van Waeyenberg from “Geraardsbergen” in Belgium.
In won the guestphotographer contest in februari. I’m 20 years old and an amateur photographer. I study graphic design in “Ghent”. Combinating photography is one of my favourite purposes in my graphic work. I’m doing my best, but I’m not a professional photographer yet. If i would be chosen as guestphotographer again in july i would be able to bring professional photography material and make a very good reportage.Further i have a hungarian girlfriend, swimming is one of my favourite sports, and I like travelling a lot..
