Two landmarks in one? 😯 @dandelargy nailed it. #Lr_PhotoHunt

#Lr_Human Photo by @jamesgoesplaces || In much of Tanzania, holding onto local customs and identities is an everyday battle against the tides of westernization. In efforts to curb rapid change, many communities are testing the waters with welcoming outsiders on their own terms, in ways that empower and strengthen their traditions. By making the education and sharing of their culture a viable source of income in rural villages, they hope to compete against the pressure to change their way of life to achieve a higher standard of living.⁠ •⁠ While visiting a friend’s village where he runs a cultural education program, he called some of its members to come and greet me. As they were coming up the hill, I was struck by the splash of color from the Maasai’s traditional robes amidst the golden wheat field.

#Lr_Human Photo by @nunoserrao|| This field is near a road I go down occasionally. One day, the light was beautiful, but going fast. I had an extra pair of hands with me, and time to kill. I took this photograph, called it ’Flow’ and drove away.

#Lr_Human Photo by @bustyroams|| On a group trip to Peru with @coasttocosta, one of our stops was the Pisac Market. As we roamed around, we stumbled upon this little boy who was practically begging for his photo to be taken in exchange for a tip. ⁠ •⁠ That moment made me wonder what I was doing at his age. I was probably off playing video games while he’s just trying to survive day-to-day. I accepted his offer, and I’ll never forget him saying “cheeeeeese, cheeeeeese, cheeeeeese”—one of those voices that stays with you forever. Such a humbling experience. 🙏🏼

Photo by @handluggageonly || Visiting Munich, I heard about these stairs in an unimposing, and somewhat unexpected, location in the city and went to check it out. My fascination with it is perhaps due to the dichotomy of what it is and what it represents.⁠ •⁠ On the one hand, it’s a beautiful piece of art. Its twists and turns make it just gorgeous to look at. On the other hand, it’s functionally pointless in terms of what it’s technically supposed to do. Its stairs take you right back to where you started, all without having gone anywhere.⁠ •⁠ The dichotomy carries on throughout the architectural design as well. It is asymmetrical yet somehow symmetrical.⁠ •⁠ The short version of all of this though is that I went to Munich and found something beautiful to look at and play with. 😄😄

#Lr_Human Photo by @shortstache || I was catching the sunset here on the beach with great company. My buddy @johnnyhomemovies was shooting some Super 8 Film of the ocean and I caught him in his element.

#Lr_Human Photo by @lindsayadler_photo|| I get extremely inspired by collaborating with other artists. With makeup artists, I’ll present a general concept, they create the masterpiece, and I capture their art in a creative way. It really helps to elevate the work and push it to explore both our strengths. I told the makeup artist Roshar that I wanted him to explore the bold and creative shapes he often makes with makeup. This is what he created. I decided to use a hard light and star filter to create those star effects in-camera. I then warmed up the white balance to give the entire shot this golden feel.

Photo by @matildegattoni|| COMPASSION. In February 2017 Alice Kideu Wani Kaya, 64, decided to flee the South Sudanese war - a brutal internal conflict that had displaced more than 4 million people - for the safety of neighboring Uganda. She escaped together with her 10-year-old child and five other orphans. The trip lasted days, during which the small group had neither food nor shelter. “I was apprehensive and distraught”, she explains. “I kept on asking myself what I was going to do with the other children”. ⁠ •⁠ Alice eventually decided to foster the five orphans all alone. She now lives in the refugee camp of Palorinya, where she is raising them together with her own child. “The first months here were very tough”, she continues. “The suffering bonded us together, unifying us into a real family”.⁠ •⁠ This is my last post of this week’s takeover. It was a pleasure to go through my memories and to share with you some of the most touching stories I covered throughout these years. Thank you for following along! ⁠ •⁠ The theme for this month in Lightroom is #Lr_Human. Submit your work for the chance to be featured!
