Since 1998 Jan C. Schlegel Regularly travels with his analog photo equipment to remote places, which are secluded from the tourism of the western world. On this tours the artist observed the rapid decline of traditions and inceasing change of the way of life of the people within their tribes due to globalization. The inexorable changes woke the urgent wish in the photographer to portrait people, to capture impressions and to preserve traditional life forms in his pictures. With his assistant, Schlegel lives in modest circumstances among the people, which he tries to portray. Step by step the photographer gains their trust, in order to make pictures in the desired nearness and intimacy.
