Julien - Photobook + Bonus postcard collection


In 1619 the city of Brussels commissioned the sculptor Hiëronymus Duquesnoy the task of replacing the old stone fountain known as the Julianekensborre with the bronze statuette we know today. Little did he know that four centuries later it would be the adopted mascotte of the city and enjoy wider global fame.

Perhaps best known as ‘Manneken Pis’, but also as Julianske, Petit Julien or simply the Little Peeing Boy. He is a global phenomenon, a true member of the global community and beloved by everyone.

In 2017 Kevin Scarlett, a Brit who has called Brussels his home for more than 30 years began a 2 year photo project to try to capture what he found unique and noteworthy of the area around this famous fountain.

What started off as a photographic exploration gradually evolved. He found himself confronted with not only hoards of babbeling daytrippers, students and hen parties but also many conflicting views on globalisation, fraternity and tourism.

Aimed at the fans of Manneken Pis or a souvenir of a Brussels weekend, but also lovers of street photography, and for anybody who is curious of what all the fuss is about and why this Brusseleir is ever so popular!
