    DESCRIPTION

    These photographs document a Belgian theme park where European national landmarks are reproduced as scale models. Part funded by the European Union, the park showcases an idealised continent where Europe's nations co-exist in peaceful harmony, in contrast to the often fractious and ill-tempered reality.

    These awkward contrasts seem to speak of the difficulties of its real counterpart. Rather than an exemplar of harmony, Europe is increasingly a divide union, wracked by financial, political and humanitarian upheavals, and where its often difficult past is sometimes readily forgotten in the search for comforting but simplistic narratives.
