    Recordings from the Amazon, Peru 2012

    In their visions, ayahuasca shamans say they see the essences that animate living beings, the first property of which is to emit melodies. These essences are considered powerful beings, and ayahuasqueros learn their melodies by singing along. Singing like powerful beings, they learn to see like them, and this gives them knowledge. The melodies that shamans bring back from their visions are called "icaros"; they help navigate the space of ayahuasca consciousness, and can also serve as lifelines when overwhelmed by visions.

  4. Cuzco, Peru.

    Spent a few weeks in Peru, with most of my time in Iquitos and Cusco. Had the BEST time.

    But I got really ill with dengue fever in Iquitos which took all my motivation to shoot, but there are a couple shots in there. I found the end quote by chance on my last day in Peru and I felt it needed to be shared.

    The True Meaning of Life

    We are visitors on this planet.
    We are here for ninety
    or one hundred years
    at the very most.
    During that period,
    we must try to do something
    good, something useful,
    with our lives.
    If you contribute to other
    people’s happiness, you will
    find the true goal,
    the true meaning of life.

    His Holiness the 14th Dalai Lama.

    Thank you for watching and if any travel advice is needed please don't hesitate to ask.
