Bedouin in the desert

The exceptionally rich archive of Camille Huysmans not only documents Belgium’s socialist past (he was, among other things, the mayor of Antwerp), but it also reflects his international political career. As a result, he visited many different places. These visits yielded a stunning series of glass plates, reminiscent of those found in a travel guide, particularly in the case of Georgia. Although we are presented with Georgia as it was 100 years ago, we cannot help but be impressed by the natural landscapes and surroundings captured in these images.
