At least 2-3 times a week I tell this amazing story about how I met this guy in Ibiza late 2012. How he started a photo lab together with his friend and how on earth it’s possible that they employ over 30 people at this moment. Film was dead, remember? But at the beginning of 2017 he surprised me again. “Hey Wes, I was thinking about organizing this event, Traveling Light Film… What do you think, wanne help me out?” Enthusiastic as always I instantly agreed without thinking too much about the consequences. A couple of sleepless months later I stood on this stage to talk to this amazing crowd. Probably the most inspiring 4 days in my photography career, cannot thank everybody enough for the good talks, the encouraging words and the amazing feedback.
And Albert, thank you for encouraging me to explore more and for believing in the gibberish I have to tell.
Torroella de Montgrí is going to explode early November 2018 so keep an eye on Traveling Light Film website for dates and tickets : https://travelinglight.eu/
90% of the time we sat in this amazing theater listening to inspiring speakers, at dinner tables talking to the rest of our amazing family, or at this really cool place called ‘La Sala’, drinking cerveza’s or fantastic Spanish wines… So only a couple of frames from the days leading to the event.
Incredibly proud of the guy at the right, my friend Albert Roig, for pulling off that one event where we all were dreaming of… Done, done, on to the next one!
