Eyewitness in Brussels exhibition opening, winner and honorable mentions

Last Friday the ‘Eyewitness in Brussels’ exhibition opened in the Jewish Museum of Belgium, showing 30 images by 21 finalists. Photographers were asked to submit work relating to diversity in Brussels, inequality, and the social, cultural and economic relations between different groups. This is also connected to the retrospective exhibition of Magnum’s Leonard Freed, running from October 2018 until March 2019.

The opening was very well attended and the winner and honorable mentions were announced in the courtyard by the curator of the Jewish Museum, Zahava Seewald. Chris Suspect (see the image above) won the contest and receives a cash prize of 1000 euros and an interview at the Brussels Street Photography Festival website. Ivan Put, Kristof Vadino and myself, Julie Hrudová, received the honorable mentions.
