1901 Gand et cetera
Made an extensive photo-reportage of poverty amongst home workers throughout Flanders, reproduced in "A travers les Flandres" by August De Winne (1902), translated as "Door arm Vlaanderen" (1903). The work was praised in the book's preface as follows: "... the magnificent photographic plates by Monsieur Lefébure, the authentic witness of visual evidence, add to the drama of the account. Monsieur Lefébure, deeply moved by the presentation of bitter misery reigning there, voluntarily offered to take the photographs that illustrate this appeal to the public's conscience." This is possibly Charles Lefébure (1862 - 1943), personal secretary to Ernest Solvay (see that name) and an amateur photographer. He documented "Bloemenwerf", the studio and home of architect and designer Henry van de Velde (1863 - 1957) in Brussels - Uccle around 1900.
