Pacha Kuti: The Golden Path

Not so long ago, in the world before Covid-19 coronavirus epidemic, our little crew embarked on a wild production adventure around Manú National Park in Peruvian Amazon, with a mission to make a short film for NatGeo Wild. Far from luxurious or easy, this trip challenged me to the core of my being, but what can you expect from a journey of return to the roots of Mother Earth… The result is our beautiful short film ‘Pacha Kuti: The Golden Path.’ Directed and filmed by Reed Rickert and produced by our production company Modern Maya, this film became a full-circle evolution of the original project we’d begun back in 2016. Amazingly, this time we were able to continue the production in the manner of my dreams – with the support from National Geographic and as part of the short film program for Sun Valley Film Festival’s 50th anniversary celebration of Earth Day coming up on April 22, 2020.

Due to the complicated times we’re living in right now and the subsequent cancellation of this year’s Sun Valley Film Festival chapter, our film’s message seems more timely than ever. That’s why we decided to do an early online release which I’m happy to share here as well.

Daniella Hunter Collection

I love to photograph fashion I can understand and wear myself. Inspired by Sanará Hotel’s co-founder Daniella Hunter’s dual life between LA and Tulum, this sustainable signature clothing line is a dream to wear on the beaches and beyond.

ART WITH ME: Tulum 2019

This post is long overdue, nonetheless I still think about Art With Me 2019 event with so much gratitude. I had my first photography exhibition Head in the Clouds as part of the festival in Tulum and thanks to the generous support of Sanará whose entire team encouraged me every step of the way and provided their beautiful ocean-front yoga studio as my dream exhibition space. This experience was a dream come true for me on so many levels… I finally got to share my art in Tulum, the town where my life as a photographer began 10 years ago! I got to see my photographs displayed on the walls of my favorite yoga space, then I got to do my own yoga practice there and to experience the images as they were intended, each one embodying and supporting a moment on the journey of transformation. The series as a whole is a soft yet powerful background to the healing events that take place in the studio and the moments captured in the images are amazing to contemplate while observing your breath in an asana to the sound of the ocean.

Of course I also loved immersing myself in all the incredible art and music around Tulum with my friends and I also got to hang out with some very inspiring people like the musician Michael Franti and the Liberian human rights activist Kimmie Weeks. All I can say is, Art With Me set the pulse for me in the year 2019 and I really can’t wait to see how 2020 ups the ante. Happy New Year and cheers to dreams coming true!

The Real Coconut: Sanará, Tulum

I never imagined that gluten-free, grain-free, dairy-free and refined-sugar-free dining could be this good! When it comes to re-imagining the way we think about food, The Real Coconut Restaurant in Tulum, Mexico, is the place to exceed all expectations. Needless to say, photographing the food here became a new addiction and, lucky for me, also led to an amazing new collaboration creating TRC’s first cook book (coming soon!)

 

Sanará Tulum: Lifestyle Photography

I Pledge Allegiance to Yosemite National Park of America

Truly one of the most iconic national parks in the world is Northern California’s Yosemite National Park. I am beyond grateful to have spent the last few days of 2018 surrounded by the spectacular beauty and changing colors of its winter landscape so famously marked by the massive granite rock formations I have always dreamt to meet – El Capitan, Half Dome, Cathedral Rock and Three Brothers, among others. To be honest, after all the big breaks, confusing challenges, risky changes and deep introspective periods of the passing year it felt fitting to end 2018 BIG by going to a place that represents epic powers of endurance and possibility, to be reminded especially in these days of US government shut-down the unforgettable words of John Muir who said – “When we try to pick out anything by itself, we find it hitched to everything else in the Universe.” The new post-Yosemite me is awestruck and inspired, wishing everyone to have an enlightening 2019! May this new year be happy, healthy and full of grace.

 

High-Rise Kingdom: Sequoia National Park

As I discovered first-hand on my recent trip to Northern California over Christmas, during the winter months in Sierra Nevada mountains at altitudes above 6000 feet there lies real magical winter wonderland… This is where one can meet some of the most fascinating creatures on Earth known as Giant Sequoias or Redwoods or simply Big Trees. Fed by the natural forest fires, some of the giant sequoia specimens are the most massive individual trees in the world. They grow to an average height of 50–85 m (164–279 ft) with trunk diameters ranging from 6–8 m (20–26 ft). The oldest known giant sequoia is 3,500 years old making these characters among the oldest living organisms on Earth. To say that my meeting with these silent giants inhabiting Northern California’s Sequoia National Park left me totally awestruck is an understatement. To be in the presence of a living thing that has been a witness to over 3000 years of human-time history is one of the most humbling experiences I ever encountered.
