Darkness reveals the beauty of light! With @oomarcoo. 2 / "My name is Marc Paput and I am a visual creator based in France. I was born and raised in the countryside, so in a way I was lucky to be surrounded by trees, mountains and precious wildlife. This allowed me to appreciate nature already as a child.
On the other hand, I had a really “closed” mind. My understanding of the world was very limited because for a large part of my life I was disconnected from everything and everyone. All this changed when I met a Korean co-worker.
My Korean friend left his home country in order to generate opportunities for his family. Despite not seeing his beloved ones and working many hours a day he seemed to be a really happy person. More than that, he was thankful to have the chance to work in a farm and create wealth for his family. To be honest, meeting him changed my mindset and inspired me to take a closer look to my thoughts and ideas about life. I have had many life changing experiences meeting people from different backgrounds and cultures. This is why traveling became something really important to me.
Nowadays I would love to travel with my two small girls to show them the beauty of our world and how important it is to protect it. Every act has a consequence - like the plastic we use which will have an impact far away in the future…Well, it is already having a huge impact! This is why I would love to introduce my daughters to the positive and negative things of our world as soon as possible - so they can understand better their situation, where they stand at and what is coming ahead.
For me traveling non stop nowadays is pretty hard, but going for long and unexpected hikes does the trick for me. I love to experience nature when the conditions are a bit extreme - but not dangerous. It is then when I feel most alive. So, I often go for hikes when it is cloudy or rainy outside. Many people stay at home when the weather is bad, so with my photographs I want to show them how beautiful nature can be in a moody day. This is the emotion I try to convey with my photos: Darkness reveals the beauty of light!" Special greetings to @oomarcoo. 2! ...
