Because we lived in Asia I had the opportunity to travel a lot, mostly in China but also in Burma, Bhutan, India, Laos, Cambodia and many other countries. I took many pictures in very remote places. To get there, I liked to travel slowly by bus, train and other local means of transport, enjoying the process of getting there!
The experiences during travelling are very important to me. Hearing sounds, the smell
and sensing the atmosphere leads me to special places. It brings me
into contact with special people in their homes, drinking tea, hearing their life story in a language I do not speak but mostly do understand. During my travels I am painfully aware of the fact that the world and life in it is not fair. I am grateful my travels and
photos brought me into the homes and lives of so many kind and beautiful people.
