    Lake Malawi

    Malawi is one of the least known places in Africa. It lies between Zambia, Mozambique and Kenia and was formerly attached to North Rodesia. The people there speak English, one of the poorest countries of the world, but everything there works with a smile. Their main economy- products are wood and fish. A lot of fish, because one third of the country is covered by water. That's lake Malawi! One boat, the Ilala, goes weekly from north to south, filled with people, maïs, goats, fish... and very eventually some lost tourists.

    Dune De Pilat

    What an incredible sight, as you stand at the base of the Dune after walking through all the touristy stuff. The heat is amazing and its so bright, it spreads out before you like a wall of sand. A staircase seems to grow out of the Dune so you can attempt to climb it without feeling like you are crossing the Sahara, of course climbing what appears to be a vertical staircase in the heat is not easy work.

    I was on the way back from the Balkans, where I just had shot an image-film for a NGO. Our way by car led us through Slovenia, which impressed us very much.

This was due to the mountains but also the renovated state of roads and buildings and the obvious economic success of the country. As so they have to deal with the common problem of over-aging.

    The young artist and Magnum photographer Christopher Anderson published on his agency's website an awesome photo series, one of the images in it a great symbol of freedom, joy of living outdoors, purity, innocence, candor, and girlhood: the bare sole of a female lifted up, taken at the Central Park in New York. Like many other great Magnum photographers, Anderson explored this interesting body part through photographs. For this tribute, I chose a series of bare feet images I took along the promenade of the lake Como. Take a look!
