Christian Meynen

°1954, Brussels, Belgium 

By means of a series of photographs Christian Meynen has given an overview of the entire Belgian coastal strip from De Panne to Knokke-Heist, since 1983. His black-and-white pictures show vacant buildings, fallow land and concrete apartment blocks as an indictment of the commercial pursuit of profit and the absence of an urban development policy. The photographs shown within the scope of Beaufort01, Billboard 'Citéq de sable' (Billboard 'Sans towns') are pictures from Middelkerke, taken in 1985 and 1993.
