Pascal Mannaerts – a travel photographer who worked for National Geographic, BBC and the Guardian – displayed an amazing collection of portraits taken at several different localities. These photos were taken over a period of 10 years, during which he travelled to exquisite locations around the world.
Unlike most travel photographs, these pictures are not of different landscapes but are of people who live at these beautiful locations.
“I try to portray the Human in my photographic works, through photographs which tend to open a dialogue, arouse emotions and questions.” He said. “Each picture is a witness of the “face to face” that happened between this person, me, and the eye of my camera.”
You’ll always find amazing diversity in people wherever you go. Pascal managed to capture this variety and displayed them in a manner which looks amazing and totally mesmerizing. We’ve selected and displayed 10 of the best portraits he captured during his extensive travels.
