“I instantly see a lot of other images in this picture, and especially the image of an exit, because I find it really claustrophobic. I find it so airless that I think: maybe this is Alice in Wonderland. And I can hope that they find a rabbit hole that leads somewhere else.”
- Saskia De Coster

For the video series ‘De keuze van’, seven inspirational people choose their favourite image from the FOMU collection.

FOMU has a collection of more than three million photographic objects. In the FOMU collection you can find negatives, analogue prints, digital photos, equipment, daguerreotypes, glass plates and photographers' archives.

The collection is constantly growing because FOMU consistently purchases work by Belgian talent and acquires photographs that help tell the history of (Belgian) photography. We also purchase international, socially relevant photography.
