« La Stroet » is a photographic work that was held on a almost 4 years period, from 2014 to 2017. This project has required patience and observation in order to reveal in an honest way, through photography, the city of Brussels.
« La stroet is ‘the street’ in Brusseleir, the Brussels dialect… » P.Easton
Behind every images, we can appreciate a kind of detail obsession. This obsession, sometimes, steers the artist to come back several times at the same place in the hope to see the optimal conditions gathered and so, take the picture as imagined before. Consequently, the composition seems natural and simple. Essential and geometric lines, balanced contrasts and the ideal light are creating perfect conditions for his composition setting up that is the focus of its pictures.
« Brussels is where the culture and languages of North and Latin Europe meet, confront and blend as can be observed in architecture, in people’s face… » P.Easton
« Jorge doesn’t show the obvious Brussels of guide books, he has spent hours and day walking the streets – la stroet - to discover another face of Brussels, in search of its soul. »
