Invitation to Dream by Julian Wilde

Currently unavailable for purchase

Available to buy on…

Victorian arm chair facing arched window in an abandoned turn-of-the-century grand ballroom.

I think I’ll share something that I just wrote as a reply to one of the Bubblers: What really was amazing… is that I video taped this scene and I play it back in slow motion. Just for kicks. :)

I’ve been doing this for over 15 years.
I was inspired to do this at the age of 22 by Helmut Newton.
I have a love affair with the kind of photography that I do that is beyond my understanding.
I do beautiful fine art coffee table books.
I’m married to my stylist and the love of my life, Raven.
Oh! And I throw parties for a living.
Large parties.

    Congrats!!! I love this image… I think someone has already called it sensual… and it does have a very dreamlike quality… I agree with both! It makes your imagination spring to life… I reckon that’s gotta be the mark of a great artwork!! Well done : )

  • Thanks Jenny. And btw, you have an "artist’s eye and the “heart of an artist.” And that’s not hard to see. ;-)
