This is where I'm based, and it's quite an interesting place.
Wonderburo is a building in the city of Antwerp. I have my office/studio there and already shot a lot of series inside and outside of the building.
The place is filled with amazing talents and creative people who I thought deserved a shout out!
Let me take you on a tour...

With a mixture of great interest in drawing and fantastical figures and the combination of the ideal silhouette with an array of textures in her clothes, MINJUKIM can be defined as extraordinary, without losing the quality of the wearable high fashion." dixit Minju Kim
