Belarus is a country that few people outside of Europe know. There are not many reasons for an outsider to know it, to be totally honest. As for me, it’s where I was born.
Travel. Those who love it swear that they can keep traveling for years at a time without settling down. For the past decade or so, this is exactly what I’ve been doing. I’ve traveled somewhere for about 9-10 months each year.
It’s not often that a camera changes the way that you approach your work, but, without exaggeration this is exactly what happened when I got my hands onto Panasonic Lumix cameras. In large part, this is why I wanted to have a relationship with Panasonic – because I loved what they created.
I fell in love with the Braslav region in Belarus when I first arrived here 7 years ago. I’ve been coming back every other year since.
I’m now into my second week of working on a project for Panasonic Europe in Belarus. Since I became an ambassador for my favourite camera-maker, I proposed to show them how I’ve been using their Lumix cameras in my personal project...
I have to say that the space looks really cool and the prints look nice and... big. I really wish I could actually see them in person, but, I won't be back in Australia till next year.
