For over ten years, I have been travelling regularly around the world with my camera. In the process of total immersion in the culture of every region or country I discover, I try to portray the Human in my photographic works. The Human, his thoughts, his convictions, his mystery, his novelty. The Human in portraits, in spontaneous moments, in slices of everyday life, through series of photographs which tend to open a dialogue, arouse emotions and questions. Sit down for a few minutes and savor some of the pure beauty that our world is there to offer us!

Water so still, you can't even tell where the reflection begins! (The pylon on the far right is the one that finally gave it away).

#4 The Blue City of Medina

The blue covering the medina of Chefchaouen provides to the different parts of town this dazzling look of purity and freshness under a mountain sun. The medina seems like a huge, winding hall of mirrors. By focusing in these streets of blue and isolation, by penetrating the crystal near its shades of blue, there would even be water dripping onto the soil and roam freely in the streets. Shades of...

The blue covering the medina of Chefchaouen provides to the different parts of town this dazzling look of purity and freshness under a mountain sun. The medina seems like a huge, winding hall of mirrors. By focusing in these streets of blue and isolation, by penetrating the crystal near its shades of blue, there would even be water dripping onto the soil and roam freely in the streets. Shades of blue are endless. Each building has a different pigmentation from the neighbor.

Vrindavan is where Lord Krishna grew up. When Krishna was young, he cried to his mother, that he was dark complexioned, but his friend Radha was of fair skin. His mother suggested him to color Radha with colors in a playful manner. - Over the years, Krishna used to go to Radha’s village to color Radha and other Gopis. They also used to playfully beat him with sticks. And hence the tradition evolved.

#9 An Abandoned Train Rusts Around Uyuni, Bolivia

On the road again. It can be a simple wanderlust or become a severe travel addiction, but once you start to travel, the percentage chance is high that you’ll want to travel more and more. It’s about discovering people, places, and it can also be discovering parts of your inner self that you probably didn’t know before.

All of the doors facing one direction. I know that the Native American Indians all face their doors East - I gotta wonder if this is typical or accidental.

Embedded within a dramatic landscape at the meeting point between the Peruvian Andes and the Amazon Basin, the Historic Sanctuary of Machu Picchu is among the greatest artistic, architectural and land use achievements anywhere and the most significant tangible legacy of the Inca civilization. Built in the fifteenth century Machu Picchu was abandoned when the Inca Empire was conquered by the Spaniards in the sixteenth century. It was not until 1911 that the archaeological complex was made known to the outside world.
