Inside Embassies in Belgium [2009]

Photography

Brussels is a home of not less than 170 nationalities, it’s a world city. Elisabeth Sri Unggul Ida Mulyani explores those different nationalities. The pictures are not only presenting the simple cultural differences but they offer a deeper and universal view trough those offices. This series offers the viewers a chance to experience further more than the waiting room or visa desks in the consulate office. The images are documentary, the perspective received from these interior images and the reading of these photographs would allow us to see things we might not even realize when we stand in those rooms. Each embassy office endeavors to present its homecountry by displaying some traditional objects or specific ones like pictures and flags. Compositions and objects are photographed in such a way that they become a composition trouvée.
