Jonny Vekemans is a Belgian miner, who discovered his new passion in photography after the closure

of the Limburg coal mines. A ‘master of panoramic arts’, he is an expert on the camera obscura

technique, which he updates and shares with whomever he encounters. Jonny Vekemans confronts

his own artistic work with images created during workshops in the visited regions. The golden

container is the product of many people, from all over, connected in a common heritage.
