Portrait of Humanity
A Tribute to the Cultural Diversity of our World
I want to photograph the diversity of human origins and the beauty of various civilisations. I find scarifications, tattoos, and other distinctive characteristics that identify a specific tribe particularly fascinating. I'm also interested in the traits that define each society and its exterior characteristics, including attire, jewellery, and weapons. Before taking any photographs, I strive to get to know people and learn as much as I can about their culture and way of life.
"Culture should be regarded as the set of distinctive spiritual, material, intellectual and emotional features of society or a social group, and that it encompasses, in addition to art and literature, lifestyles, ways of living together, value systems, traditions and beliefs."
