There are no limits to the mind.

You might be wondering how to still explore the world around you in a safe way, while the COVID pandemic keeps us from physical travel.
Memleket is one stimulating but safe way to explore new lands. Venture out, from the comfort of your home.

A travel photography book that celebrates our shared values and experiences.

Photographs I have taken in 30+ countries over the past 10 years. A decades worth of travels, and I walk away with a stronger appreciation of our world, our diversity.

For as long as I can remember, I wanted to write a book. A book that brings together things that I spend most of my time doing, my life-long passions: travel, reading and photography.

Adventures. 

The more I traveled, the more I realized the connections and shared values between what otherwise seemed disconnected. From temples on the Himalayas to a beach in Malaysia to a back-alley bar in Bogota to a seaside town in Italy. Or just the usual street corner in New York City. Differences were notable, for sure, but what stood out for me was the similarities in human curiousity, care for loved ones, kindness to strangers and perseverence in the face of hardships.

Photography.

It happened to be a passion I was able to hold on to throughout my life. Whether with an analog/digital camera or my smartphone, I try to capture moments that reflect the essence of that moment, as it stands for me. Typically these moments that are a bit off-to-the-side, and might look quotidien for the ordinary viewer. But the me, these moments tend to pack a ton of meaning.

I am thrilled to share my lifelong aspirational project with you. I wish it brings you as much joy as it did for me working on it.It happened to be a passion I was able to hold on to throughout my life.

Limited editions.

Every book is editioned. For this project, I decided to limit the number of copies to 500 editions that are marked by me individually. I wanted every book to be a small token that is worth saving in your library. (hopefully!) It is also nice to think that, with every edition, you are connected to the other readers, friends, family.
