Tales from Ardennes

The Belgian Ardennes is a region with rich history and folklore and much unspoiled nature: deep, almost impenetrable forests, hidden valleys and fast rivers. Local legends speak about heroes and saints, fairies and hobgoblins, witches, werewolves and the devil.

To me, the landscapes and towns in the Ardennes breathe fantasy and inspiration thanks to their authenticity. The region has a unique character with a co-existence and a mixture of modern, historical and even archaic elements. The connection with the local heritage creates a special atmosphere where new surreal stories and symbols could be evoked by inspired imagination.
