Michael James O’Brien at MoMu and later on at Sonny Vandevelde’s opening at RA

 Dear Shaded Viewers,

I had not seen my friend Michael James O'Brien since my last trip to Rotterdam. We had fun catching up. Michael is a real New Yorker relocated, and could not be happier, in Antwerp.


Damien Carlier, like a knight in shining armour, he always manages to save the day. Tonight he took me back to my hotel. I checked in to the Hotel les Nuits but had never even seen my room and at night there is no one at the desk so I was a bit concerned how I was actually getting in, Damien took me back to the hotel and made sure all was ok. He saved me many times in Hyeres as well.
