Rohingya

Posted in Burma, Portrait, Reportage

It is time for an exception. I re-post this portrait from 2010 now in colour. This is unusual for me but I would like to send out a message today.

Back in 2010, I was in Sittwe (Myanmar) on a market, a boy was going around. The people there, they did not appreciate his appearance on the market. The men hit him, this small Rohingya boy probably only was looking something to eat.

These days we learn the Rohingya’s are escaping from Myanmar, they are not welcome in Bangladesh and India. The world today still has dark sides far away from our safe homes, I hope the Rohinga’s find a safe harbour soon!

Ella - Sri Lanka - March 2017

After a long walk in the mountains and tea field of Ella (Sri Lanka) I met this man on a railroad. He was selling mango’s to people walking back to the village of Ella. Of course I bought some, it was a long way back to the place where I stayed.

The perfect stranger

Posted in France, Portrait

Sometimes I see someone and say to myself, that person is unique. This happened again a few weeks ago, I observed this man in the bar we (me and my wife) visit in summer and said, well that’s an interesting face. Sometimes… miracles happen, he is leaving and looks at my Fuji X Pro1 which clearly looks very old with all the signs of use. He invites us for another drink and we start to talk about the weather and other things… it is time to pick up that good old camera and capture some impressions…

Normally I just press one or two times the button. I found out that this is more than enough, here I pressed 8 times and show my selection of four.

After the drinks we’ve shared I promised him to bring some prints next days, they still are here… till today I did not see him again.
