' I kept thinking I was going to forget things, so I made sure my camera would not let me. It broke the barriers created by language between myself and the people in front of the lens. there are languages that are intuitive and conversations one can have without words. Each day brought about a new sort of communication with a new person. A woman at a homestay cooking our lunch found us amusing, as we did her. I captured this moment and later on that day I wrote in my journal ‘She did not speak a word of english but she sure did cook a great meal’. In one hundred and ninety days my camera and I broke communication barriers across India, Nepal, Malaysia, Burma, Laos, Vietnam, the Philippines, Taiwan and Indonesia, making each stranger a potential lifelong friend.'
