Why I’m on Couchsurfing

As my life is linked with my work, my passion ; I can say, that Couchsurfing is a way to practice my art !!! Yes ! In my work, as a traveler and photographer, I'm always interested by the elsewhere and especially by the people who lives there…
You can see my website to know more about it (http://www.chantalvey.be/).
In brief, I always meet people to know more the countries…to do "portraits of landscapes". I like to invite them to participate to my projects, that's why often I ask to bring me in a place which is very important in there way of life, and there I take a picture and a video…it's by the eyes of the others than I have the feeling to see better and understand more the elsewhere…

With pleasure to tell you more about it when we'll meet !

My first experience with couchsurfing was in 2010, when I decided to do a "road trip" on the border of Belgium "aRound Belgium".
With couchsurfing I met people who lived on this border and asked them to bring me on a special place on this border…the pictures I took, were exhibited in several countries, and every body had "a souvenir", an extract of it !

Since 2014, inspired by "The Long Road of the Sand", which describes a journey made by Pier Paolo Pasolini in 1959, I followed his route along the coast of Italy.
In the same way as usual, I meet people via couchsurfing and I ask them if they would like to participate at the project hosting me and talking about their territory, the same territory almost 60 years ago described by Pier Paolo Pasolini…Bring me in a place in which you are attached.

Hope you will be part of the project…
