The first photos I would like to show you are those of Vanessa Bouhadana. She has this amazing website, called Art Jaunts where she keeps the visitor inspired by all the handmade goods and traditional crafts she encounters on her travels.
“No matter where I am, I get reeled into learning more about authentic treasures and the meticulous process. There’s nothing more beautiful than seeing a traditional craft passed down from generation to generation”.
When I contacted her for my blog I got the nicest email back and I think her enthusiasm and passion are reflected in her own photographs and website. A lot of projects and artisan hubs can be found on Art Jaunts, and Vanessa also displays photos from photographers who worked for these different artisan projects. Of course, in this post you only see her pictures. In total it’s a gathering of beautiful photos and projects, which I personally really like, because I can totally relate to the special feeling you get when you suddenly bump into a beautiful art or craft during your travel. For some reason, (which is probably that our western society uses industrialized fabrication most of the time), the handmade goods are always attractive and special. And I think that Vanessa captures this very well.
