A new article about my project “Intimate Favela” was published by Thaís Cavalcante in the comunity media from the favelas of Rio de Janeiro Voz das Comunidades

“Os interesses de Antoine Horenbeek em arte e arquitetura foram ponte para aumentar sua capacidade de contar histórias através de imagens. O cotidiano das pessoas marca suas fotografias, que trazem uma narrativa em vários ângulos e uma única perspectiva, aquela sem preconceito. Foram três meses de trabalho em cinco favelas de diferentes cantos da cidade. Antoine contou mais sobre o projeto “Favela Íntima” em uma entrevista exclusiva.”

Check out the last publication of ELLE Decor Italia about my work and my connections between architecture and photography.


“Architettura e fotografia, un binomio perfetto secondo l’architetto e fotografo belga Antoine Horenbeek che, in alcuni dei suoi viaggi, per lavoro e per passione, ha immortalato in giro per il mondo gli angoli che meglio descrivevano il rapporto tra spazio pubblico e privato, tra città e abitanti.”




































Recently my work was published on various medias such as WeAreTheColor, Aworkstation, Mundo Flaneur & Viral Bandit.

I am taking photographs of Molenbeek’s public housing for Le Logement Molenbeekois in Brussels.











My work was featured on Ignant.

The creative duality of Brussels-based architect and photographer Antoine Horenbeek finds form in his documentation of urban spaces around the world.

Interested in the aesthetics of emptiness and abandonment, along with architectural notions of public and private space and how humans move within cities, Horenbeek’s images offer an intriguing sidestep from traditional architectural photography. “In capturing images”, he explains, “I am just as intrigued by the empty spaces as I am by the many ways in which they are appropriated.” In the two projects highlighted below, ‘Brésil, l’aube’ (2015-present) and ‘Ethiopia’ (2016), he has visually explored multiple disparate cities, capturing their design and the way in which it impacts those who live in it daily. It was in Ethiopia that his lens shifted from capturing architectural sites in order to convey something more; “I felt the need to take my photography one step forward, and capture the human experience”, he noted. “After all, architecture does not always convey the expressions of people.”

Work in progress in Charleroi, Belgium.

I am working on a new series: Pays Noir

In 2008, a survey of the Dutch newspaper 'De Volkskrant' cited Charleroi as the ugliest place in the world. This former mining town in southern Belgium was the center of a vast coalfield, now completely abandoned, formerly known as ‘Pays Noir’. Since its decline, the city has often suffered a very bad reputation in Belgium and elsewhere.

The intention of this photo series is to give a more accurate and realistic vision of this city. The aim is to show new points of view on the industrial and natural landscape, the architecture and the inhabitants of this city that is full of poetic and unknown places. Without taking part in the debate on the beauty of Charleroi, these photos will give reading keys to understand better this unique city in the world.
