The Fools With Dreams Book

A year of living through trades, told by images, interviews and stories.

The Book

What happens when you give up everything you have and start living through trading your services as a photographer for a place to stay? For a year that’s exactly what I did. An adventure that would lead me to stay with 62 people who stood for doing things differently, who challenged the status quo and made their own dreams come true.

The Fools With Dreams book is the result of this crazy experiment. A unique visual narrative of what and how I saw for a year, accompanied by interviews with my hosts and short mémoires about lessons learned along the way. Consider it an intimate glimpse into the life of a photographer, and as such, into the life and dreams of the 62 fools I lived with.
