Portugal Road Trip - Porto to Lisbon

Portugal Road Trip - Porto to Lisbon

While having Vienna as a base, I often made trips to the surrounding countries; it was amazing to me how one could travel a few hours in one direction and experience an entirely different culture and language. Having been inspired by my travels and new experiences, I set out to begin studying photography in Berlin, Germany. Fast-forward two years, and I’m currently staying in LA, temporarily working on my own projects. Today I’m fascinated by seemingly mundane places, and in love with harsh light and shadows.

The Untouchable Women

The Untouchable Women

As we drove into the village, we passed a sign in a language I could not read. Divya, the Indian man accompanying us explained that this sign marks the village of delits or “untouchables.” Lowest in the Indian caste system, this people group has traditionally been classified as less than animals. We intended on visiting the widows of this village to check on how the roofs that Divya and his family have helped provide are holding up. The widows, seen as cursed and responsible for their husband’s death, are cast out to live in villages like this one. What look like piles of mud covered in trash are actually houses—mud walls fitted with makeshift roofs of tarps, old billboard coverings, and garbage bags, not fit for keeping out the monsoon rain. For this reason, Divya’s family works to provide the watertight roofs of woven palm fronds, but even these are not a permanent solution and must be frequently repaired or replaced. Even so it is the best they have; the villagers don't own the land, so permanent structures are not an option.

COMO The Treasury Hotel - Perth

The smell of the house made ginger tea served for us as we sit down to chat, fits right in with our perfectly still surrounds. Bar staff are quietly preparing for the lunch service and we sit down with, who should be, one of the proudest General Managers in the world, Anneke Brown. As we begin our conversation, you can see from the smile on her face and the sparkle in her eye that she loves where she works and she wants everyone to experience it the way that she does.

The Unique Culture of Brazil.

The Unique Culture of Brazil.

Brazilians, I learned, are loving, passionate, embracing people whose generosity flows from the wealth of their hearts. I remember being welcomed to several of the locals’ houses. They put out anything and everything that they had; cakes, cookies, lollies, fruit… it was their joy to offer the best out of what little they possessed. True poverty, I realized, was not what we lack in our wallets, but what we lack in our hearts. These people were rich.
