In an age where he who shouts the loudest is heard first, Belgium’s familial modesty offers a welcome counterpoint, and is taking the world by quiet storm.
Featured in the premiere issue of Akt, my piece 'The Quiet Revolution' explores the notion of Belgian modesty. Akt is an independent magazine in search for greatness in a small corner, abstraction in the mass, with a keen eye for timeless aesthetics and a nod to Belgium's creative landscape of architecture, design, fashion, food and beyond.
