Photographer's Note

MAS - Museum an de Stroom.
During a two-day business trip I had some time to stroll through the old town and along the river Schelde in Antwerpen. An impressive city with so much nice archtecture. In the gallery I found 511 picture from Antwerpen, but I think it the first of the MAS

"A new museum in Antwerp about the river, the city, the port and the world" says the brochure about this museum. The MAS embodies the genius loci of Hanzestedenplaats. It is taking the place of the Hansa House, which was there until the end of the nineteenth century. This location played an important role in Antwerp’s history in the sixteenth century and the nineteenth century and will be doing so again, as a result of the development of the Eilandje district, which includes the construction of the MAS.

The museum will be opened end of 2009.
