Nara's star attraction is its Daibutsu (Great Buddha), one of the largest bronze statues in the world. It was unveiled in 752, upon the completion of the Daibutsu-den (大仏殿, Great Buddha Hall), built to house it. Both have been damaged over the years; the present statue was recast in the Edo period. The Daibutsu-den is the largest wooden building in the world; incredibly, the present structure, rebuilt in 1709, is a mere two-thirds of the size of the original - Todaiji Temple, Nara, Japan
Rumoured to be the busiest intersection in the world (and definitely in Japan), Shibuya Crossing is like a giant beating heart, sending people in all directions with every pulsing light change. I caught this traveller at a less busy moment - Shibuya Crossing, Tokyo, Japan
Unlike many tribes around the world, the Himba don't make bread. Instead they use maize meal to make a porridge which forms a part of their staple diet. Aside from this, they eat the meat of their livestock (goats and cattle) and use the milk from both as well. To thank them for their hospitality we brought food with us. Here they are sharing the food whilst the all-seeing eye of the chief (third person from the left) is making sure everybody gets his fair share - – Close to Van ZyL’S Pass, Kaokoland, Namibia.
The Serra Cafema camp located on the banks of the Kunene River, is one of the most remote camps in southern Africa - Hartmann's Valley, Namibia.

The Himba most appreciated the two goats we offered. The animals were immediately slaughtered and cut up. That very same evening we enjoyed a BBQ together... – Close to Van ZyL’S Pass, Kaokoland, Namibia.
The Skeleton Coast is a windswept strip of desert covering almost 500km/310mi of Atlantic coast. This spooky park is often shrouded in fog and dust storms. Its name comes from the numerous shipwrecks lying on the shore – Skeleton Coast, Namibia
At the Serra Cafema camp located on the banks of the Kunene River. Serra Cafema is one of the most remote camps in southern Africa. At the camp I had an excellent cultural immersion opportunity with the local Himba people. After having socialized with the them for a couple of days I asked them to join me for a photoshoot in the stunning desert scenery early morning - Close to the Serra Cafema Camp, Hartmann's Valley, Namibia
My camera often causes a commotion… At the Himba village close to the Van Zeyl’s Pass there were several children who moved in front of the camera to make faces, introduced themselves, etc… The autofocus lens moved in and out, and some of the children were intrigued by how that worked… All of that commotion resulted in some interesting pictures - Van Zyl's Pass, Namibia
Beautiful, defiant and intense, Argentina seduces with its street-side tango, incredible foods, gaucho culture and welcoming people. Explore the mighty Iguazu Falls, take in the colors of Buenos Aires. Then head into nature to explore Peninsula Valdes, Torres del Paine National Park and the humbling Perito Moreno Glacier. Reaching the end of the world at Ushuaia is just the tip of the iceberg of an incredible country. Argentina is one formidable cocktail of wanderlust!
"Photography is an art of observation. It’s about finding something interesting in an ordinary place. It has little to do with the things you see and everything to do with how you see them."
I just like to take pictures, I just push the button. I never worked in the darkroom, I never studied photography or journalism; I’m just a passionate photographer.
"Success is the ability to go from failure to failure, without a loss of enthusiasm”
