Micca Mont: El Camino

Last month my production company Modern Maya produced a music video for electronic musician/producer Micca Mont‘s new single ‘El Camino’. We filmed in three beautiful locations scattered throughout Yucatan peninsula and while shooting in the pink lagoons of Las Coloradas I also ended up snapping a few quick impromptu shots, supporting one very prophetic photo we made together years ago in Tulum during one magical full moon rise which is now the cover art for the same single.

 

Summit Series: Tulum, 2018

I had an incredible time photographing Summit global community gathering in Tulum, Mexico. Here are some of my photo selections from all the high-frequency happenings over the course of three beautiful days in Nômade Tulum, Be Tulum and Casa Malca.

Yäan Wellness Spa: Tulum, Mexico

Photography for Yäan Wellness Spa in Tulum, Mexico.

“Yäan Wellness was born from the magic of Tulum, Mexico. It is a center of wellness and healing where you will find your inner and outer beauty in the integration of mind, body and soul. From the moment you pass the burning flame, you will be immersed in the elements of fire, air, water, and earth and feel at peace with Yäan’s elegant and organic design, which respects the flow of nature in both space and time.” ~ www.yaanwellness.com

Movida Maya: Teaching Photography Workshop

Photography Workshop ‘Images and Identity’

When Tulum’s local NGO Movida Maya invited me to lead the ‘Images and Identity’ photography workshop with Mayan teenagers in Mexico’s indigenous fringe community Chumpón, Quintana Roo, I was humbled because the reality of these kids’ daily life challenges made my own current problems fade in comparison. Yet as soon as we started to spend time together walking around the village and exploring it through photos, I felt incredible connection with the kids because I myself happen to be a time capsule from a culture that no longer exists. I vividly remembered my own struggles with identity and striving to make sense of who I was in the face of globalization despite (and because!) of my roots. I also remembered how my hunger to change careers and become a photographer actually originated from the desire to communicate subtle inner experiences for which I couldn’t find words in any language.


 

Photography exhibition: ‘My community, My identity’

One month later we were delighted to learn that Tulum’s 1st Arts & Culture festival – ART WITH ME – proposed to organize a sponsored exhibition “My Community, My Identity” with my portraits from the workshop in Chumpón. The event was beautiful and we extend enormous gratitude to all who attended and supported from afar. What a way to raise awareness about Movida Maya and their crucial youth-empowerment programs inside local indigenous communities. To learn more and support please follow this link.

 

Faces of Zamas

To say that Zamas Hotel is just a client would be a huge understatement. Over the course of my photographer-in-residence assignment with this legendary boutique hotel in Tulum, Mexico, the family who owns the place has truly become like my own family. Each one of these portraits brings a smile and a special memory and I’m beyond grateful that life brought us all together in our favorite spot on the edge of the Caribbean. Don Daniel, Susan, Chelsea and Sofia – I miss you every day!

 

Zamas Hotel Guest Chef Series: Tulum, Mexico

Certainly one of the best perks during my photographer-in-residence gig at Zamas Hotel was meeting all the wonderful guest chefs and photographing (ahem, tasting!) their food. Can I please return for another season?!

 

Sounds and Yoga: Sanara, Tulum

One gorgeous day, from sunrise until dark, I immersed myself into the world of Tulum’s lovely Milano-born eco-glamorous sound therapist and yoga teacher Alessandra Montana. We spent the day between the beach and Sanara Hotel’s beautiful yoga studio shooting and playing with Ale’s impressive collection of frequency instruments. The moonlit sound healing session at the end left me forever addicted to mind-clearing sounds of gong magic.

 

Live from Zamas: Tulum, Mexico

For 25+ years, from the beginning of its operation in Tulum, Zamas Hotel‘s live stage has been home to local and passing musicians from all over the world. It’s nice to know that some things never change and that almost every night in our special corner of the planet one can count on an understated world-class live music performance over dinner under the stars. From classic flamenco to gypsy jazz to rock-n-roll and electronic – you never know if you’ll hear a legend like Jorge Pardo, Camilo Nu, Bogdan Djukic, or an yet unknown great. This place changed many lives, including yours truly, and I’ll never stop expressing my gratitude to Don Daniel and Zamas family for keeping the music going all these years!
