I have an innate love of stories. And this is the reason what drew me to photography. I believe storytelling matters—it heals and teaches; it inspires and resolves; it enchants us as well as enlightens us. Since then, this has been a core pillar of my career as a photographer.
The aim of these projects is to reveal universal truths about humanity by sharing real stories of human struggles and their eventual triumph. Through these meaningful stories we see how very different people share the same life experiences and how human nature can transcend culture.
I love exploring places and meeting remarkable people around the globe. I don’t think there was a time when I wasn’t dreaming about exploring a new place. For me, each is a new adventure to experience, new knowledge to learn, and new memories to share. I love everything about travelling, particularly the amazing people I meet. That’s why I take more photographs of the local people, together with their small community, instead of the usual tourist spots. Because they are the ones who make my travels more meaningful, interesting, and unforgettable.
I asked some of my fellow travellers from around the world on why they love to travel:
"I travel because I’m an experience junkie. I’m always seeking new and thrilling experiences – it makes me feel fulfilled, happy, and alive! I love exploring new places, tasting new flavors, meeting new people, learning new skills and understanding different cultures. I’m not into expensive material things, but I’m all for collecting meaningful experiences and memories that will stay with me for as long as I live. "
