Two Old Flemish Peasants

"These are photographs that I've taken of two men who are close friends. They live in the same village. One has never had a woman in his life and has always lived in complete dirt. "

“These are photographs that I’ve taken of two men who are close friends. They live in the same village. One has never had a woman in his life and has always lived in complete dirt. The other is a widower who never stopped mourning the loss of his wife and has also been living in dirt. They spend a lot of time together.

It’s ironic that these two men live in, of all places, Flanders, which arrogantly calls itself one of the richest regions in the world.”
