YOUR WAY TO HELP THE CHILDREN OF RUKA HAVE BETTER NUTRITION
THE DANIEL MALKA PHOTO PROJECT
Capturing one’s soul and story filled eyes, has always been a pleasure as well as a mystery for me.
Maybe because it always opens a window on my own soul and heart, and sometimes that in itself is not so simple after all.
No matter where, how and when, as long as there is light and people, there will be new odysseys and beauty to photograph.
All we need to do, is open our heart and our eyes, and they will do the same.
Capturar el alma y los ojos llenos de historia, siempre ha sido un placer y un misterio para mí.
Tal vez porque siempre se abre una ventana en mi propia alma y corazón, y a veces eso en sí mismo no es tan simple después de todo.
No importa dónde, cómo y cuándo, mientras haya luz y gente, habrá nuevas odiseas y belleza que fotografíar.
Todo lo que necesitamos hacer, es abrir nuestro corazón y nuestros ojos, y ellos harán lo mismo.
I was always fascinated by people’s hands.
They always tell me a story about the character.
When I shoot portraits, I always observe the hands and how people place them.
I often ask them to show them to me.
Her hands were red from Henna, covered in dust and very dry.
When I asked her to show them to me, she opened them forward in a very gracious and simple way.
I was told by a friend that Henna is applied to the hands and feet for its healing and medicinal properties. It is also a cooling agent in hot climates.
It is believed in very ancient cultures that go back thousands of years, henna had qualities that improved human awareness of the earth’s energies.
It was therefore applied to help people keep in touch with their spirituality.
