While traveling through Turkey’s Hatay Province to document the situation on the Turkish-Syrian border, I met a Syrian Bedouin family living as refugees in makeshift tents next to a small dusty road.

French photographer Matthieu Paley has always been a great inspiration to me, both as a traveler and a photographer. Two years ago the acclaimed photographer did a huge story for National Geographic on The Evolution of Diet. Paley traveled through seven countries, reporting on communities like the Bajau (Borneo), the Inuit (Greenland) or the Hadza (Tanzania) and their ancestral diet. He also published a book from this assignment, which can be order through 180°C, Man & Food – The Origins. For National Geographic Live Paley sums up his adventures during this assignment, you can watch the seven episodes below.
I have created a new page on my blog called 30 pictures which will be devoted to travel photography and will feature thirty single images of one country or destination.
