•International bestseller, one of Belgium's most important photographers, Stephan Vanfleteren

Belgicum is a photo project about Belgium. It is not an objective representation of a country but rather a subjective photographical document in black and white. It's a journey of exploration into a small country in the heart of Europe, at the turn of the centuries.
