Photographer's Note

The church of Saint Jacob
under a very threatening sky

---

Probably my favourite circumstances for photography is when the sky turns deeply dark, yet the sun shines low and strong to light up the scenes below.

The SAINT-JACOBSKERK is one of the main churches of Antwerp. It was built in the troubled golden age of the city (from 1491 to 1656) largely in Brabant gothic style.

It is located near Antwerp's university district and functions as the main church for the university, as this branch of the university was founded by the Jesuits. There are other branches further away from the center without religious roots.

The Sint_Jacobs is also where our city's most famous baroque painter Pieter-Paul Rubens and his wife Helena lie buried.

THIS PICTURE is the view if you walk towards the university district from the Meir, which is our main shopping street.
