In Ghent (Belgium) there is a grayish, deserted, old industrial street referring to the modernist photographer Nikolaļ Kossikoff. This desolate street is situated in the Seaport neighbourhood.
From this place you look at the port of Ghent, which is the major subject in Kossikoff's photography.
In the 1930's Kossikoff made photographs of the activities in the port on an almost day-to-day basis. The port was his world and major theme. Kossikoff's work remained unknown until recently.
Presently, you can discover his work in museums and in private collections. After more than 40 years Kossikoff finally gets the recognition he deserved.
