Although Sebastien Nagy has always been interested in photography, it is only last year that he really began pursuing this passion. He describes his work as urban poetry in the form of images that are sometimes dramatic and sometimes magical. Roofs, underground spaces and abandoned places are the playgrounds of this photographer. Urban exploration through photography has a large following in many major cities, but not in Brussels, according to Nagy. He aims to prove that his hometown should not be underrated as it is lined with hidden treasures. It is this motivation that continues to lead Sebastien Nagy on the trail of an extraordinary Belgium.
