"This picture is of a dawn procession in Axum, Ethiopia, in 2017. Lately, I have been working on a series called The Wisdom Trips. I was invited to follow some admirable friends who are working on uniting twelve masters or elders from tribal spiritual traditions around the world for a two-day symposium in New York, focusing on meditation and exchange in order to explore new perspectives for humanity, towards the end of the year. The trip has taken me into the jungle in Brazil, the glaciers of Alaska, Gabon, Botswana, Australia, Mexico and Russia to name a few. This photograph is from one of those trips."
"This was taken at the famous Brazilian architect Lina Bo Bardi’s glass house outside São Paulo. I took this picture while British artist duo Gilbert & George were doing an installation in a show curated by Hans Ulrich Obrist. Brazil has its own set of uniforms, characters, and stances which sometimes have a humorous side, or a strong contrast with the environment, and this is something that I like to document in my work. In this particular moment, I feel that Gilbert & George showing their personalities in front of the uniformed staff made for a great shot."
