Speaking at Open Show New York – Clay and Ash Project

The Baliem Valley and its surroundings is home to the Dani people. I spent about a week trekking through the rough terrain going up and down steep and slippery hills and crossing rivers either by foot or by suspended bridges visiting some of the small villages where the older member of the tribe still live […]


Dani Tribe – Baliem Valley – West Papua, Indonesia

While spending time in PNG I was exposed to some of the traditional dances, and costumes from the different tribal groups.  One of the tribal groups in Simbu have this tradition of painting their bodies with a skeleton design.  I believe this was to scare some of their rival tribes instead of using violence. That […]


Papua New Guinea – Part II – Clay Art Project

Papua New Guinea is a country of contrasts, milenary culture, and contradictions. There are over 750 languages spoken in the country.  Every region has it’s own identity and sense of pride. I have spent a couple of weeks mostly in the Highlands area of the country and have visited different villages and settlements (Huli and […]

I received the GRAND AWARD for albums at WPPI – 2013

I spent two days in the dunes of the Sahara desert with Hassan and Omar.  Two great men who bring people to the desert to experience what it is like to spend time there.  It was an amazing experience to be with both of them.


Morocco – Part IV – Sahara

Many things have happened in the past couple of weeks. I will summarize some of my experiences Morocco is a land of contrasts. It is a country that lives with tourism, hence many of the tourist traps exists and the “sharks” that try to take advantage too, but once you are able to get away […]


Morocco – Part III

Some portraits from the past few days.  Stories to come…



It always takes me a little bit of time to get into the rhythm of a new country.  You can read as much as you want from travel guides or other people’s experiences, but it is not until you hit the streets that you really feel how things work and experience the dynamics of the […]
