Opgroeien in Tegenwind

Opgroeien in Tegenwind

Photolovers traveled to Nepal to photograph over 100 children in 4 different children’s homes. We portrayed the children and asked them to draw or write their dreams. All the dreams and pictures came together in this book. The hardcover book contains 100 pages and costs €20. €12 goes to the foundation who supports the children.



This book is about the beauty of Tibet. I traveled from Lhasa to Guge Kingdom, celebrated Saga Dawa at Mount Kailash and walked a kora around the mountain.

Impressions of Yunnan

Impressions of Yunnan

Three times I traveled through Yunnan, a province located in southwest China. I spent some time in rural areas and visited ancient villages. I walked a few days through the rice fields of Yuanyang and enjoyed the scenery of red earth Dongchuan. I celebrated the Torch festival with the Yi ethnic people. The festival was celebrated in and around Xichang, which is situated in the southern part of Sichuan province, close to the Yunnan border.
