Great gift for book lovers !
More than a 100 years ago a beautiful new building was finished in one of the suburbs of Bruxelles, Belgium. One of the finest veterinary schools in Europe started in this building in 1910. It became abandoned in 1991 after the relocation of the university to another city.
TITLE: MEDICO VETERINARIO
MEDIUM: Fine art photograph - Giclée print
PAPER: Satin Barytha Photographique, museum quality, 310 gr, semi gloss
INK: High quality archival pigments
The building was left alone.... Silence..no more laughing, footsteps or tears. Just nature and memories were present. Not quite, a lot of the old stuff they didn't care about was left as well.
We are fond of abandoned buildings. The atmosphere, the excitement of being alone in such a overwhelming place is a thrill for itself. So, even the place was totally locked and closed to prevent entrance, we succeeded to have a look around. With only a camera, tripod and flashlight we entered and arrived in a world where the present was vanished.
Inside the basement we found a vast archive, dating back to the late 1800's. One of the great things were a couple of magazines, securely bound together with a small rope. Date: 1888!
This is one of the occasions you are forced to take that image! So we did. The result is this beautiful art print "Medico Veterinario".
After a couple of hours, experiencing the past we securely locked everything again, we left with a mixed feeling. Everything would be destroyed in a while. Unfortunately that's the case right now. In 2013 it shall be completely renovated and become a modern training school for businesses. The only thing left, to remember the glories days of a century ago, are the photographs we took.
The day we visited this building is one of the great experiences you will never forget!
We hope you will enjoy this fine art print with the history in mind!
