FROM “HOW THEY SEE TO HOW THEY EAT”, RUKA PERU by DANIEL MALKA
YOUR WAY TO HELP THE CHILDREN OF RUKA HAVE BETTER NUTRITION
THE DANIEL MALKA PHOTO PROJECT
It took 5 months to start this project and to get to Peru.
I have been living in a suitcase for the last 2 months.
I have made many friends and discovered a wonderful and warm hearted country.
I am preparing 2 more projects in Peru.
I had an interview on TV and one in El Commercio.
2 days ago I received a call from El Commercio asking me to send a high resolution image for the cover page of the paper.
The fairy tale of the kids of Ruka goes on.
I am so proud of these children of HOW THEY SEE and their work.
6 weeks ago they barely knew what a camera is, today they are published on the cover of a national newspaper.
If that is not a fairy tale, I don’t know what is.
Thank you children, thank you my friends and thank you the stars and the mountains of Ruka.
I had a dream, 2 days ago it became reality.
The next step will be to help these kids and reward them for their talent. We are well on our way.
I keep loving what I do and I keep doing what I love.
And the rest are history and dark shadows
Capturing one’s soul and story filled eyes, has always been a pleasure as well as a mystery for me.
Maybe because it always opens a window on my own soul and heart, and sometimes that in itself is not so simple after all.
No matter where, how and when, as long as there is light and people, there will be new odysseys and beauty to photograph.
All we need to do, is open our heart and our eyes, and they will do the same.
Capturar el alma y los ojos llenos de historia, siempre ha sido un placer y un misterio para mí.
Tal vez porque siempre se abre una ventana en mi propia alma y corazón, y a veces eso en sí mismo no es tan simple después de todo.
No importa dónde, cómo y cuándo, mientras haya luz y gente, habrá nuevas odiseas y belleza que fotografíar.
Todo lo que necesitamos hacer, es abrir nuestro corazón y nuestros ojos, y ellos harán lo mismo.
THE DANIEL MALKA PHOTO PROJECT WILL GIVE THE CHILDREN THE CHANCE TO SHARE THEIR VISION
BECAUSE ALL THE CHILDREN OF THE WORLD HAVE THE RIGHT TO BE HEARD
AND A GREAT EVENT IT WAS, THANKS TO ALL THE WONDERFUL PEOPLE THAT CAME TO GIVE THEIR HELP AND SUPPORT.
ALL PRINTS FROM THE EXHIBITION ARE AVAILABLE ONLINE HERE.
