In this travelling I look for people. Yet it is impossible to predict which kind of people I will meet, I believe that this uncertainty brings magic.
Chile – Bolivia – Perú – Ecuador – Colombia – Panama – Costa Rica – Nicaragua – El Salvador – Honduras – Belize – Guatemala – Mexico – US – Canada – Alaska.
This trip is especially important for me, because it will be a starting point of flagship Alaska-Patagonia journey. I will visit wide open spaces of Canada and pass through USA and its incredible landscapes. Besides, North America will give me an opportunity to relate to their natives, for example, Navajo people in USA and descendants of legendary Mayas and Aztecs in Mexico and Guatemala.
Central America is known for its jungles, beaches, biodiversity of flora and fauna andpeople’s generosity. In South America I want also to investigate pre-columbian cultures as Tairona people, who live in Columbia. I also will document and film the Andean region, aland covered with secrets and ancient beliefs. It gives me an opportunity to visit Peru, a centre of the Inca Empire. In the past this empire was extended to most of South America.
In this continent I will also visit my homeland in Chile. In Argentina I
will arrive to the southernmost city in the world, which is called Ushuaia. There some years ago still native people of Yaghan could be found and now only one person, bearer of this culture, is still alive. By reaching this city I will finish the journey from Alaska to Patagonia.
Turkey – Czech Republic – Austria – Hungary – Serbia – Bulgaria – Iran – Afghanistan – Pakistan – China – Tibet – Nepal – India.
This route will bring me from Europe to the heart of Asia. Just after I pass borders of Turkey and Iran I will rediscover greatest Persian tribes. Forwarding to China I will pass through Pamir highway and its mountain panorama. In this trip I am able to see roof of the world, Mount Everest and spiritual meссa of Tibetan and Buddhist people, Mountain Kailash. The Himalayas and living there nomadic tribes are a great inspiration for exploration and photography. I want to document, explore and learn less-known but exciting area, which is located between Pakistan, Afghanistan, China and India.
Japan – Corea – China – Burma – Thailand – Cambodia – Laos – Vietnam – Malaysia – Indonesia.
After India I will reach the Southern-East Asia, which was always most inspiring place for me. I want to visit once again Cambodia with its mighty Angkor Wat, Burma with its thousands of temples in the area of Bagan, landscapes of Thailand, cultures of Laos and Vietnam and beautiful coast of Indonesia.
Australia – New Zealand – New Guinea – Philippines.
I am planning to go around Australia to photograph and film a wildlife there. I also count on meeting with Australian natives. In New Zealand I will document life of the modern Maori culture. Crossing islands of the Philippines I will arrive to Japan in MARUCA Music order to visit this country and prepare current publications and materials for future releases.
South Africa – Namibia – Swaziland – Mozambique – Zimbabwe – Zambia – Malawi – Tanzania – Kenya – Ethiopia – Eritrea – Sudan – Egypt – Libya – Tunisia – Algeria – Morocco.
This continent has always attracted me with its influential musical culture. As well, wonders of Namibia, wildlife of Kenya and dunes of Sahara are perfect spots to film and make photography.
I am deeply interested in African culture, its people and their creativity, an ability, which allows them survive under difficult economic situation they live every day.
Portugal – Spain – France – England – Scotland – Norway – The Netherlands – Sweden – Finland – Denmark – Lithuania – Germany.
The way back through Europe will be for me a great chance to finalise and release all results. Using possibilities of big cities and its venues, I would love to focus on
finishing my photography and music projects, organise exhibitions and publish books MARUCA Music in various languages.
