Last December I traveled to Nepal to participate in a project called Kathmandu Inside Out (KIO). It’s a photography masterclass that happens every year in the Kathmandu Valley promoted by Singaporean photojournalist Edwin Koo and Nepalese photographer Suraj Shakya.

It was completely unexpected the call I received in March of 2018 from J.P. Mendes challenging me to create a visual narrative for his latest song. Even though he knew that film is not my preferred medium he was quite enthusiastic about the idea of a long distance collaboration and creating something that would be relevant to the theme of the song. The result is this 6.00 minutes music video entirely shot and produced in Singapore.

Special thanks to Wendy Yee for her participation, patience and dedication to the project.

After almost three years I went back home again, well, It’s not quite home anymore but I’ll get back into that later. First, a little bit of context.

Grünau is a Namibian settlement, located on the side of the B1, Namibia main road, and just two hours away from the South African border. I drove there for petrol and coffee during my recent road trip but ended up staying a little bit longer. It’s a massive contrast when we think about the more touristic and postcard type of landscape that Namibia is famous for but it is nevertheless a real landscape, a real settlement with just a few people resisting the passage of time.
