> >People and their amazing houses in the lens of Pascal Mannaerts
Living in your familiar city, you involuntarily forget that this way of life does not exist everywhere. People live in slums, wander around the country, carrying housing with them, scrambling in the mornings for water over rocks, seizing empty houses. The world is infinitely diverse - the Belgian photographer Pascal Mannaerts knows this firsthand.
For about ten years, Pascal traveled around the world, climbing into his most exotic corners and guests in the strangest dwellings from the point of view of a citizen. From everywhere he brought photos of local residents and their amazing houses, publishing them in his Instagram and on the website.
