Photographer's Note

ANTWERP CENTRAL STATION was built in the late 19th century in a typical eclectic style of the time. There's a vast iron hangar and an impressive domed central hall which functions as the train station proper.

This station is generally considered to be among the most beautiful train stations in the world and we are quite proud of it. There are quite a few pictures of it already on this site, here's a picture I took yesterday as I looked up after getting my train ticket to Lier. The shot was taken on an old mobile phone, but I'm very happy with the result.


THIS PICTURE is looking up in the central hall. The highest point here is some 75 metres high. I love the way this late February light falls through the big windows, it's like an enormous magical lantern showing us glimpses and fragments of the interior architecture. I absolutely love the spill-over of light at the top here, showing a bit of ceiling.

Architectural striptease!
