Loving our planet
Introduction
I am: Photographer of ExposedPlanet.com , Adventurer, climber @7summits.com, cyclist @ WorldOnaBike.com.

Humanitarian, trying to share the beauty of the planet and to improve the parts that need it.

I have started ExposedPlanet.com not only as a way to show my portfolio, but also to share the beauty of our planet. Nowadays negative press & media might make people scared of everything foreign or different: culture, religion, people and the places themselves.

This xenophobia is taking over our lives and prevents us from seeing the real world as it is: a wonderful place with beautiful people. There are no bad or evil countries, religions or people. There is bad and good people in every culture, including your own.

I hope I can share a bit of the amazement I have enjoyed while traveling the 7 continents. The more I see, the more I know I still have to see and I will.

Life is too short to focus on not-existing enemies & fears.

I hope that my images will sparkle your imagination, make you curious or even just educate you a bit, being maybe the 3 most important aspects of society in my view.

A picture can say more than a 1000 wars and can maybe help understand the world around us.

It’s a small place, so maybe we can make the best of it together.

Bragging rights
Happiest with little or no stuff. Can cook a meal outside at -40 degrees. Built my own 5-string bassguitar. Climbed 7 summits, published photographs & stories in many magazines and books, cycled Alaska-Patagonia, wrote 4 books. Saved and improved lives by replacing thousands of kerosene lamps in Africa and Asia by a self-developed solar-powered LED light. My sons & wife.
