Bus stop, Nick Claeskens

“‘Globalization’, a commonly used word these days, is the reason of changing global landscapes. Larger firms buy small, authentic companies, the small companies that want to keep doing what they do, and don’t want to be bought by larger firms, struggle to compete, and eventually disappear. My view on this phenomenon is displayed in my first book called: ‘bus stop’. For decades, sons and daughters kept the bus company started by their mothers and fathers alive. These past 2 years I travelled through Belgium to document their activities, to feel the atmosphere on board and to show who they are. What’s evolving and what could be lost in a few years. Safe travels.”
