My name is Erik Verstraelen and I am a soon-to-be Medical Doctor for which I have travelled around the world. For my studies I lived in -30°C in Eastern Europe and later I conducted research in the heat of the Javan jungles. In my free time I travel as intensely as possible, routing and planning hiking trails deep into the mountains anywhere in the world. I have spent considerable time travelling to far eastern countries such as Uzbekistan, India, Nepal and Tibet. The submitted work is a small selection of the photograpy from my journeys. I believe in clean photography with which I try to present a realistic impression of a composition intended to inspire.
