Breathtaking Color Photographs of Belgium Taken by Remi Verstreken From the Early 20th Century

Around 1890, a number of Belgian amateur photographers decided to use photography to reproduce the beauty and express their inner feelings and thoughts. Their vision had been opposed by painters and art critics, who were of the opinion that photography, being the product of a technical device, did not belong in a museum.

Thanks to the invention of autochrome and the introduction of the manipulated image, moved the photography closer to the contemporary art movements in painting. These breathtaking pictures were taken by Remi Verstreken from the early 20th century.
