During World War II, Marcel G. Lefrancq took photographs for fake IDs for Jews attempting to escape Belgium.
In works such as this one, Marcel G. Lefrancq presented views of daily life in his native city, Mons, from an unexpected perspective. A woman stands inside a room looking out the window in a reversal of the standard version of such imagery: rather than being seen from indoors, landscape enters the space in the form of a creeping vine. Lefrancq published it in a photographic portfolio, where it was featured alongside similarly evocative poetry.
