I am a photographer and writer, who, obviously has a full-time occupation by the side.
This blog is a way of satisfying the creative urge that has never left me since my times of freelancing for a newspaper. In a way, this is a work in progress since I started it back in July 2017, so bear with me, while this blog finds its way. You are welcome, of course to share with me your own ideas and input on what you wish to see on this blog and I will try to humor that as I can.
Where am I located?
I currently live in Hong Kong , after a posting of 5 years in Thailand. Before that, I basically lived in Europe for all my youth, and did not travel out of Europe until I was 36. As I am based in Asia, the blog tries to translate also my Visions of Asia as well as various passions of mine.
Who am I?
I am a lawyer and a graduate of biomedical ethics. You may see some posts which combine these aspects of my training, and that’s where this blog is unique. As I cannot relate too closely this blog to my full-time activity, this is all I can say for now.
My own family is a formidable union of so many influences, so I often like to say that I was one of the first children of globalization at a time where this was not yet a word in the vocabulary. Because it is difficult for a child at the confluence of several cultures to become completely part of one culture, this has made me more inclined to create my own culture, from bits and parts of other cultures.
This blog is at 95% a photography blog, but it also aims to invite you to travel both in your mind by exploring different cultures and their interactions, and in the world by seeing new places and pointing out cross-cultural influences.
Most of my culture still smacks of tradition and of classicism. So, don’t be astonished if I try to share that as well. But as you will maybe discover, I am quite eclectic in my tastes and I am not shy of that.
Another part of me, which is more inhabitual is that I also run barefoot (and hike and bike…). Unconventional as it may be, it has been a great experience and I try to share it on this blog as well. In more recent posts, this has taken quite some space as most of my hikes are now done barefoot. I also provide some sources around this practice here.
With all this, enough talked about me. You can read my latest posts here.
