A majestic but dilapidated house holds the gigantic, chaotic archive of three generations of photographers. The stories it reveals bring together history, melancholia, and the eternal struggle between fathers and sons.
The 83-year-old photographer Herman Selleslags wanders through his past, in a house on the iconic Cogels-Osylei street in Antwerp. The archive it contains includes the photographic heritage left by his father Rik, and the work of his son Jan. The collection reveals the story of an extraordinary photographer who documented an exciting era of musical and social change, spanning more then 70 years. But the thousands of prints also conceal two complex father-son relationships, which have marked this family of photographers.
