Shiraz | Brussels, 2020

This project is the result of a collaboration between me and Loïc Bruno Mrszlk, Music producer from Brussels living in Paris. I used 200 Google Street view Spherical maps from Shiraz and Brussels, all captured from the places me and Loïc often passed by or have some memories there.
