The Monography Series Award Nikon-Bozar recognizes the work of a Belgian photographer with a solo exhibition at the Palais des Beaux-Arts. From the 120 submissions, the jury selected the work of Titus Simoens (b. 1985 in Gand). Simoens’ series Mount Song was shot in 2013 in a kung-fu academy in the Chinese province of Henan. Over the course of 7 weeks, Simoens photographed the daily life of children in this secluded and disciplined community. The photographer blended into the background, becoming almost invisible, which gave him the opportunity to take incredible photographs.
