I am a traveler, a photographer and a storyteller.
I have always been a traveler and a wanderer. Travel for me is not about vacations; it is my way to learn about a world that I care deeply about. There is nothing that energizes me more than to be in a foreign environment trying to uncover some of its secrets. I have an insatiable curiosity about other cultures and their ways of life. Not that life is easy everywhere and I have seen plenty of very challenging situations. But I always find beauty wherever I go.
It is this beauty and an urge to share it that got me into photography. After an unsatisfying career in academia, a few years ago I decided to act on my passion to see some of the more remote regions of the world, and share what I find. I am a self-taught photographer, but I have tried to work on my skills diligently. As you can see from my images in the galleries, my true love is to photograph people; I rarely photograph landscapes or landmarks. Although I enjoy shooting portraits, what I really like is capturing “snippets” of people’s lives and documenting small events, from cultural rituals to daily life activities.
And I like to tell stories, so I started a blog where I can have images and words. It is not a typical travel blog with tips of where to go on a next vacation, nor is it a typical photography blog with only the best images captured on a trip. It is a blog where I tell stories and select the images that help tell the tale. If you take the time to look at some of the posts, please do leave a comment. The comments are another way for me to learn, which is my deepest passion. If you prefer to communicate with me directly, I can be reached at firstname.lastname@example.org .
To a beautiful world,
