Travel Photography

What we do during our working hours determines what we have; what we do in our leisure hours determines what we are.

George Eastman

Traveling is not about visiting places. It is like reading a book about different cultures. This gives us knowledge to understand other people.

Photography captures a moment, helps to prevent our remembrance. It uncovers the way we see the world.

Travel Photography is not just taking pictures, it is about making them to be part of the travel story.

my last trip:

South Carolina

In South Carolina planters had very specific demands for slaves. The most valuable were workers from present-day Senegal and Ghana. The reason was very simple; people brought from these regions were already experienced in working in rice fields.

The home to four generations of the Rockefeller family, a majestic mansion overlooking the Hudson River was completed in 1913. John D. Rockefeller, the richest man of his time, bought Kykuit and had the home redesigned.

Union Church of Pocantico

The little Union Church of Pocantico is worth a visit because of the unusual stained glass windows.


Berlin Wall

With the closure of the inner German border in 1952, West Berlin became the main route by which East German citizens left for the West. By 1961, approximately 20% of total population of the GDR (German Democratic Republic) migrated to the West. To prevent further mass emigration, in August 1961 the East German government began construction of the wall around the whole West Berlin.
