We travel, initially, to lose ourselves. Then we travel to find ourselves. To open our hearts and minds to learn more about the seven billion other people we share this big blue ball with.The greatest joy of traveling is to simply leave all my beliefs and notions behind, and to open my eyes wide and try to see the world without any preconceptions.
If you will take a little time to chat with the people you meet along the way, you soon realize that our similarities far exceed our differences. Even though our looks and beliefs may differ, our wants and needs, our hopes and desires are all about the same.
.. it’s such a thrill meeting people of different cultures, learning about and from them. It’s changed my perception about life, humanity and spirituality.
___A. R. Rahman
Laughter is the sun that drives winter from the human face.
Who sees the human face correctly: the photographer, the mirror, or the painter?
Photography records the gamut of feelings written on the human face, the beauty of the earth and skies that man has inherited, and the wealth and confusion man has created. It is a major force in explaining man to man.
Preservation of one’s own culture does not require contempt or disrespect for other cultures.
What do you think is the world’s most recognizable container of information? It’s the human face. We are constantly reading each other and responding.
There’s nothing more interesting than the landscape of the human face.
