So many things; it has opened so many doors in my life. I cannot image all the amazing places I have visited in the last twenty years of my life without a camera in my hand. I feel so fortunate to have been able to see through my lenses the world we live in and deciphered the beauty that surrounds us. I took this image in my second trip to Africa, my first trip to East Africa. In this trip I focused on the beauty found on people’s faces as much as in the landscapes and the wildlife. I also learned that breathtaking beauty can also live in close company of brutality, cruelty and unacceptable traditions. Photography has helped me learn about this world, all the good and all the bad.
