Although a Jew will rarely look a woman in the eye, or shake a woman’s hand, sometimes a photographer will succeed the impossible. This series was realized after a chance meeting, and with a lot of patience and perseverance. It will give an honest view of a very closed community: the Antwerp Chassidic Jews. Without the extremely heartfelt welcome of the Taub family, this series would never have been made.
