Kiss & Brol
Photographs By Catherine Minala
From 7 December 2015 to 26 February 2016
The Alliance française de Bruxelles-Europe gallery invites you to discover the work of the French photographer Catherine Minala. Established in Brussels since 1994, Catherine Minala roamed the tiniest streets of the city with the idea of capturing its soul through transient and significant moments for a black and white project: "Brussel My Belle". This undertaking led to the book Kiss & Brol and an exhibition at the Alliance française de Bruxelles-Europe gallery, which Catherine Minala will dedicate at its opening night.
