Some pictures haunt you. You get an idea and try to realize it. Most of the time, it doesn’t work. But sometimes, you finally manage to get something. It’s never really what you were looking for, but it still remains a nice feeling.

After a few years dreaming of it, I am finally in Latin America (Peru). Wondering where to travel, I decided to work for 2-3 weeks for an association, before hitting the road. With simple living conditions, isolated in a small village, it sometimes reminds me field trips in Darfur. But for once, I speak the language and communication is therefore easier (not to mention the absence of national security).
I hope to keep improving my Spanish skills and really look forward to taking pictures, hopefully depicting interesting situations. More to come… inch’allah.
