Laos - February 2017
For a long time, I wanted to make a trip dedicated to photography rather than trekking: even if I love walking in general and trek in particular, it is sometimes frustrating not to be in the right places at the right time, or not to be able to take the extra time to make really good pictures, or not to be able to benefit from the advice of someone whose experience far exceeds yours. Receptive as I was, the first ad I reveived about a photo trip sent me to Laos with Frédéric Dupont as a master photographer. Frédéric, although he excels in all genres (well, thinking about it, I did not see any nudes on his site) literally "explodes" when he makes pictures "with people in them". He also does a lot of black and white and, believe it or not, he uses film cameras (yes, with a film in it, which must be developed later)! In short, he does everything I don't do. The journey promised to be fruitful ...
I was not disappointed for a second, and even though I'm not ready to give up the fabulous way of traveling that is trekking, I think my pictures will have something changed in the future. In the meantime, here is a selection of those I took in Laos.
Check out the photos of the trek on Flickr, to download the images in their original size and see on a map the places where they were taken.
No trek map this time as this was not a trek.
