why

when younger

travelling with parents as an expat kid

went to British boarding school

received wrong medicine for malaria and hair fell out, before, after

I didn't change, my people perception did change

experienced: how you look can influence everything

decided to go on a journey to find to one place where other people are bold

found out it was Tibet

however: the real yourney was to find myself

the real journey

started 4 year ago

when I did truly find myself

wanted to photograph 35 of the worlds last cultures as art, as icons

project: before they pass away

something happened

went far beyond phorography

started to learn lessons

3 lessons I learned

Be careful when you look and judge somebody

for example, Samburu warriors, they look female, but they can kill lions with their bare hands

in the developed world, very comfortable with, prejudices, judgment

look closer, cause you never know what's around the corner

We all have a choice

for example, chukchi, Siberian eskimo's, they received apparment flats to live in, the chose to come back to their own land, to see their children and their old people

if you dare feel:, yourself, the environment your in, one another

you'll feel what will make you happy

By being vulrnable you can connect with people on any level

for example, Kazakh warriors, I ripped my fingers when they were frozen to my camera, two Kazakh women, hugged me, rocked me, sang a song, broke down all their values to help me, they are a traditonal Islamic culture

truly becoming naked, wherever you are on the planet, as a metaphor of course

We have to wake up

document these culture very quickly

or we will lose them

they're our origines

we need to

start a dialougue

a new conversation

in

what we can teach them

what they can teach us
