I love people! Meeting new people is the best part of travelling. I love to hear their stories and everyone has a story. So I have dedicated a series of posts to the people – called Faces of the World. All of these photos are taking by me and I might even share their story. See part the other part one, two and four for more photos of beautiful people!
Malaysia – I met these children in the small island Mabul in Borneo, Malaysia. Mabul is a island where people travel to in order to go diving and stay in resorts, but hardly any of these tourists visit the small village there. The village is poor, but the people doesn’t seem to be bothered. They live on the gifts they get from tourists and whatever the water might bring. They didn’t wanted anything for the photo, but they just enjoyed getting their picture taken. Everyone in the village asked if I wanted to take their photo and then had big laugh when I showed them the pictures 🙂 The sad boy was only sad that I stopped taking pictures of him and started taking pictures of all the children 😉
New Zealand – I took this photo during a Maori show. It might have been touristic, but it gave a good insight into the Maori culture. We learned about their songs, dances, games and so much more. The company make sure that they hired Maori and that the young Maoris therefore maintain their culture
Peru – This kid is of on the few locals living on the first part of the Inca Trail. He loved having his photo taken and it made his day even though he was not particular interested in seeing the photo afterwards
Qatar – I met this man in Doha, Qatar. I found him really interesting, because he seemed drunk in a country where alcohol is strictly forbidden and then I liked his face. So I asked him for a photo and was allowed to take it
South Africa – I was on a tour to a township near Hermanus and most of the residents did their best to look nice on the photos. They loved having their photo taken! It is actually their only option to get a photo. But this boy was rather shy and just pulled my shirt, so I asked if he wanted a photo. He bashful nodded, so I toke it. It made him smile. He never spoke a word, but I am sure it made his day seeing his photo
