PERU. It crawled under my skin. Affected my soul. Four weeks in Peru deeply touched the somewhat jaded traveling me. There is an energy to life here. A rawness, anarchy, hardship and smiles. A chaotic mix full of contrasts and absurdities that overwhelm, overtake and charm me. The friendliness and hospitality of the people of Peru is very special. It crawled under my skin. Affected my soul. La Alma del Perú.
This is a visual diary of La Alma del Perú. The soul of Peru. It got under my skin and into my blood. I want it to stay there.

I am currently a global gypsy and can be found, literally, anywhere on earth. I was the former head of IT in an agency in the Danish Government, but unable to shed the long held dream of growing up to be Luke Skywalker, I left Copenhagen and my job in 2009, and took off around the world living on the road as a gypsy, photographer, time-traveler, jedi. I am currently working on a wide ranging photography project of documenting my own experience as a global gypsy. Photography is my primary form of creative expression, as it allows me to fuse my own perspective (imaginary or otherwise) with the real world as I experience it, within the frame of a moment. I am also an aspiring filmmaker and write about my ongoing gypsy journey on my blog. I am an official Fuji X- Photographer and primarily photographs with the Fuji X-Pro1 camera.
