With his home-built lenses, Jasper Léonard wanders about everywhere in order to capture life in the big city. Belgium Resized is Belgium as never seen before, viewed through the eyes of this urban photographer from Antwerp. An original photo book for Belgians and tourists alike. The pictures seem to emerge from the classic film Honey, I Shrunk the Kids. Léonard works from rooftops, lifting platforms, occasionally even from a helicopter. In contrast to the well-known Slinkachu, he shows the world as it is, yet in miniature form.
