Description Some children in this dusty little village in the Middle of Nowhere, Tibet, were curious enough to approach us, but too shy to really come close.. This little girl likely had never seen a bottle of shampoo in her life and yet she lives of less money than many of us do spend on things like that.
In 50 years our grandchildren will not believe us when we tell them how much energy our generation wasted on warming water for long showers and baths and how much chemicals we entered in nature so our hair could be a little bit more fluffy. Now which society did you say was civilized again?
Harry Kikstra, Earth Member Since February 2007 Artist StatementWho am I?
Harry Kikstra, a climber/expedition leader/ photographer/ filmmaker/ producer/ writer/ public speaker/ cyclist and many other things that have to do with sharing the beauty of the outdoors. I have climbed the 7 continental highpoints and have travelled a lot and will not stop soon, though normally I am based in Amsterdam, The Netherlands.
Contact me if you want other images or galleries from ExposedPlanet and I will add them.
I, Harry Kikstra, have started ExposedPlanet.comnot 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 travelling 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.
The posters here all have small borders, with the name of the image and "ExposedPlanet" on them. If needed, they can be cut off or covered with a mat, if you just want to look at the subject only. If needed, I can upload a 'clean' version, just ask. Also please let me know if you are looking for a specific image or subject, as there are many more where these came from and I might be able to help you out, see also my website for a few hundred examples.
These images will also show more of the culture and other nature that is to be found on our 7 continents. I hope that it 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..
