My Occupation Yoga, painting, cooking and cycling mainly - plus sometimes making photobooks.
My Bio After living in various locations in Asia from the early 90s on - including most recently in Laos - and traveling throughout the region since before then, finally we returned to Europe in 2012. Few regrets so far other than a lack of photographic inspiration. To compensate I've been working my way through my back catalog making photo books.

Things I Don't Mind The World Knowing

Spoiler alert: I'm thinking my next book will be about...
The indecisive moment. The antithesis of Cartier Bresson's moment.
Everyone needs to know about these authors and artists...
In my humble opinion: read Donald RIchie and Henry Miller. Look at Cy Twombly, Mark Rothko and Gerhard Richter's paintings. Take in performances of John Cage's work especially if performed by the Korean dancer/choreographer Shin Ja Hong. Listen to Keith Jarrett. The photographer Harry Gruyaert's Morrocan photography was partially what originally inspired me to pick up a camera.
This book is addictive. Read it. (At your own risk.)
'This Changes Everything' by Naomi Klein and 'Meme Wars' by Kalle Lasn/Adbusters for the truth of economic fascism and climate change - one leading to the other. 'The Tao of Travel' by Paul Theroux and the 'Tao Te Ching by Lao Tsu for everything else in life.
