Comprises 70 photos of Belgian chips stands, taken in less than a year. Some of the chips stands featured have since disappeared: they are the Belgian symbol par excellence, yet they are gradually being dismantled one by one. The book shows the power of photography as a medium that enables us to hold on to things even when they cease to exist. With an introduction by Paul de Moor.
