“The real voyage of discovery consists not in seeking new lands but seeing with new eyes.”– Marcel Proust –
From the mystical landscapes of Lanzarote in the Canary Islands, to exotic locations in Indonesia, over the mighty mountains of the Himalayas in Nepal, through the vast countrysides of New Zealand, forays into romantic German villages or a sailing trip to the lesser known and remote islands of the Azores my photo galleries take you with me on the trip and the images let you take part in the most memorable moments of my travels. Discovering the world, returning home with my eyes wide open.
Since a couple of years Bali is my new home so the Indonesia image gallery is the one that naturally grows the most. With an estimated more then 18.000 islands and around 300 ethnic groups Indonesia has many faces and beautiful and exotic places that make for incredible photos. Bali has also given birth to my newest photographic project which you may visit at www.bali.photography
It was the beautiful Canary Island of Lanzarote which first brought me to photography. For over fifteen years this unique island had been my home and its unreal landscapes, its magic light and colours captivated me from the first moment I put foot on this volcanic rock in the middle of the north atlantic ocean hence many of my photographs on this site are from this wonderful place. Discover the island of contrasts in my Lanzarote photo gallery.
In 2012 I traveld 4 month to Nepal where part of the time I was volunteering in an orphanage. Whilst I had read a lot about the situation in Nepal, nothing could prepare me for the reality. As a result of this trip my own little help project with which I support three children came alive. You may find out and help to support this project by visiting my page dedicated to Dani’s children in Nepal or simply visit my Nepal pictures gallery.
In my photo and travel blog you will find stories of my voyages, my homes in Bali and Lanzarote, updates to my charity project “Dani’s children in Nepal” and of course you will see the newest pictures that I am adding to my image galleries. The blog, just as Dani Stein Facebook page, is the place to follow me and my photography.
