in the Abbeys in Flanders

The Abbey of Roosenberg, Waasmunster

In the heart of Flanders, where history weaves its intricate tapestry, lies a realm shrouded in silence and contemplation—places where seclusion and community peacefully coexist. “FILI(I)(AE)” is a photographic exploration delving into the captivating lives within the abbeys, illuminating the groups of individuals who have chosen to retreat from the bustling currents of society for solace and spiritual connection in the tranquil embrace of monastic life.

Within the pages of “FILI(I)(AE),” the abbeys spring to life in group photos of their inhabitants. Each abbey community narrates its unique story through their own words, offering a personal perspective on the beauty and challenges of communal living.

Both the Dutch and French versions of this thoughtfully published book by Pandora, Antwerp, were warmly received and have unfortunately evolved into cherished collectibles, now sold out.
