About Me

I am currently very enthusiasm about photography. I find lots of inspiration through magazines such as Kinfolk, Fvf, Ignant.... and I am im myself working on a few projects.

I catalog my travels on vsco:

and instagram:
https://instagram.com/smallcupofchai/

I love to get to know people, I think everyone is so inspiring in their own way. Maybe that's why I find passion in documenting them, through a way I enjoy particularly, photography.
Here's my project:
. . .
Find Love and Give it Right Back -Project

Constantly looking for participants, people that want to share their passion / lifestyle with me.
(It might be bee keeping, your favorite camping spot, frog hunting, your running route, fishing, picking flowers, canoeing, your daily market stop, the peaceful place you go to when you feel like it,.... or it might even be your job or an insignificant detail of your life. )

. . .

Future trips:
Middle east
India (again)
Africa
Hike New Zealand, North to South.
South and Central America (is calling)

Walk through a village where a tourist had never laid foot.
Have been request by a village's old-lady medium (with the prettiest eyes I ever seen)
Have been invited by Vietnamese at a near-death celebration of an old man that broke his hip. We got hand fed and drank hard with the family.

I survived an avalanche on my way to ice caves.

All you need is love for what you do, who you are, for people around you and who you meet today. Memories are made in a fraction of second.
