Diving deeply within oneself to get rid of the limits formed by our education, our culture, our conditioning and our fears that oppress us until suffocation. Live to reveal our true nature and get rid of successive layers that deform our perception. The search for the Self, through a burning desire for liberation by uprooting the limits we unconsciously impose on ourselves. In some parts of the globe, we are unfortunately still far from the equality between man and woman, reduced to living in the shadows. Becoming aware that fear does not exist and fighting ignorance are the only options.

Julien de Wilde is a Belgian photographer and filmmaker who shares his time between Belgium and Thailand. His work is focused on self-inquiry and introspection, full of sensitivity and truth. Go to the essential, without detour or artifice. Do not pretend, just be. His work in black and white, dense and deep is an invitation to dive into ourselves.
