Brussels from Above is a project by our very own photographer Herman,
and won the Visit Brussels UNEXPECTED & ORIGINAL CONCEPT 2017 award!
Brussels from above was a spectacular 360° virtual reality project, created by Belgian photographer Herman Desmet. This project showed – via the www.brusselsfromabove.be website – the Brussels skyline from a whole different perspective. All of the panoramic photographs were taken from places that are not, or rarely, open to the public: rooves, towers, cranes, etc. On the website, visitors could use their mouse to scroll through 360°, and click on hotspots in each photograph that took them to new locations in the city. These locations could also be viewed by going through the menu. Thanks to this virtual reality project, the capital of Europe was be viewed in a magnificent new way.
