Faces from places low quality preview

  1. 1. 1 Faces from Places Over the years I have been travelling to many places on our beautiful globe. This book contains a selection of 72 photos of Faces from Places. There is no particular idea of project behind this publication, other than the desire to bring together the people of the world who were caught by my lens. The style of photography is casual. Several pictures are portraits. I do not ask persons to model, but sometimes they do as soon as they see my camera. Sometimes I catch persons unnoticed. These shots I like best, as they are natural. The selection of photos stems from several countries: China, Ghana, Greece, Honduras, India, Indonesia, Malaysia, Mexico, Peru, South-Korea, Spain, Thailand, Vietnam. I took them between 1984 and 2017. The quality varies. In the nineties I used celluloid film rolls for my Minolta and Canon cameras. I had these scanned to a digital format Since roughly 2002 I have been using digital cameras made by Canon. These were never high-end cameras though. In the mentioned countries I traveled as a tourist or I was there for reasons of work, like visiting a conference. Most photos are actually snapshots on the occasion when I was passing by. Peter Oeij Peter Oeij is by profession a scientific researcher spending much of his freetime as an amateur photographer. During his travels he caught many colourful persons with his lens. ‘Faces from places’ is meant to share a selection of his pictures with others who are eager to see who crossed his path in America, Asia, Africa and Europe.
