It’s a feeling of relief, almost of pleasure, at knowing yourself at last genuinely down and out. You have talked so often of going to the dogs – and well, here are the dogs, and you have reached them, and you can stand it. It takes off a lot of anxiety.

clochards deluxe’ is what these three homeless call themselves. They feel lucky for they have been able to create their own space for living, a self-built shelter on a piece of wasteland in the city center of Ghent, Belgium.
Two men, one woman, two dogs and three chicken have been sharing this shelter since May 2013. They cook daily, they talk, joke, quarrel, play, watch DVD’s, drink beer, invite some homeless friends and forbid access to any drug addict.
