‘As a photojournalist I like being somewhere else but I hate travelling. I mean the process of travelling… So how do you solve that contradiction? You pick a country you came across when you were still hopping from one plane to another and you settle down there. There are several advantages: chances are you’ll be less superficial in your reporting, you avoid spending hours in airports and crappy hotels, you spend less money on travel expenses, you get to see your children grow, and your carbon footprint is trimmed down by at least 3/4…

So which country? There are many reasons, but there is no reasonable explanation. In my case it was Cambodia in 1989, 1991, 1999 and I stayed in 2000. It could have been Vietnam or Berlin… But here we are, 20 years later…’ – John Vink

This presentation is part of the “sharing session series” on photography initiated by Sa Sa Art Projects.
