In 2019, we are going to bring forward a selection of physical and moral persons who have been contributing in big ways to the SaDunya project. We’ll also showcase inspiring people who are shining with their social or economical commitments and are building bridges between nations and cultures, as well as people who are knocking over walls and frontiers between Earthlings.
Acting locally while thinking globally.
Julien Mabillard, our resident photographer, ticks all these boxes. He has been contributing immensely to the SaDunya project, both with the pictures he has been offering us for free and with his constructive criticisms.
Today, I decided to fly again to Switzerland (article in French) to meet a self-taught photographer so that he could tell me more about his passion. The entire family insisted on coming with me, because each of them had a question for the photographer. After a 7-hour flight and a couple of air pockets that frightened the youngest ones, we landed in Geneva. After the passport check, we had to wait because of a visa problem. Yes, I had “accidentally” 😉 spilled soda pop on Assane’s visa, which made it hard to read… After lots of talking and our photographer’s intervention, everything was back in order.
Welcome to Switzerland, the country of chocolate and banks (French) (lol)
Paying honour to whom honour is due, the first question is mine.
