‘Belgicum’ is a photo project about Belgium. This is not an objective reflection of the country, but a subjective photographic documentary in black-and-white. A journey of discovery through a small country at the heart of Europe at the turn of the century. Stephan Vanfleteren wandered, got lost and searched through the ‘Belgicum’ territory for more than fifteen years, driven by emotion and love for his motherland. It was a trip through a country with scars, looking for an elusive identity but with the melancholic soul of an ancient nation.
