In search of visual thrills? Want to be wow-ed by a photo? And in a quiet setting? Take a stroll around the city's photographic galleries that feature some really unusual artists.

Undoubtedly the most "hype" in its category is the Young Gallery (avenue Louise 71- 1050 Bxl) located under the Conrad, which for years has shown works by the great names in photography. Patrick Demarchelier, Sam Shaw, Mark Seliger and even Richard Gere have hung their frames there. The themes dealt with often flirt with glamour and famous people. Not far away, in the hushed setting of a private mansion house, Aeroplastics (32 rue Blanche - 1060 Bxl) with its provocative and intriguing pieces is in the "must see" category when it comes to the world of photography. Go and visit this den whose one aim is to surprise. In a street nearby, Rodolphe Janssen (Rue de Livourne 35 - 1050) , ever ahead of his time, will make you discover a selection of wild and resolutely contemporary exhibitions. For all adventurers in another style, the Galerie d'Enfer (Place du Samedi 16 - 1000 Bxl) with its fantastic-erotic-burlesque exhibitions takes you into another dimension. Be prepared: hang on to your eyeballs! OLIGRAPHE / van de Kerchove
