In our ultra-modern societies where technology dictates our lives and shapes our behavior, where change is continuous and the word friends rhymes with social networks, are we still aware of the existence of a world where people live off the land in houses they built with their own hands? Are we still conscious of this precious balance of the Nature that feeds us?

This world where men, women and children live in the tradition of their ancestors is vast and scattered across all continents. Nevertheless, a lifestyle based on the traditions and customs of previous generations is not synonymous with poverty or the rejection of the modern world. Worshiping the gods in one’s customs, weaving one’s clothes, raising livestock or making one’s soap are all inherited activities of a culture we all come from.

During the journeys I have made over the past seven years in the remote villages of various countries, I had the privilege of meeting fascinating people in their daily lives, in their approach to community and the vision they hold of their society. Their hospitality and open-mindedness allowed me to show, through this series of portraits and scenes of daily life, people living in remote and inaccessible areas, and though poor communities economically, they remain rich in their cultures based on traditions and sharing.

This book is a tribute to those people who are proud to preserve the traditions of their ancestors and to make it a model for their children in order to live in a world where the precious balance between nature and mankind remains sustainable.

    Q About the photographer

    Slawo Plata is a Swiss photographer born in Warsaw in 1968. He grew up in Poland then moved with his parents to Switzerland at the age of 9. As a child, Slawo was passionate about photography and started the black chamber at the age of 12. He practiced, at first, landscape photography, then later he specialized in different type of photography but most importantly in portrait and people & everyday life photography.

    He was particularly interested and passionate about famous photographers of the 50s/60s for their peculiar style. From the age of 15, Slawo did photo shooting on regular basis to capture true life experience and portraits. Considering his passion more than a hobby, he decided to study photography in Paris, where he graduated in 1992 from the MJM Art School.

    From 1993 onwards, Slawo spent a few years in Poland, where he worked as an independent photographer for communication agencies.

    Back to Switzerland, he started to collaborate with NGOs and travelled around the planet to capture and immortalize cultural and traditional life of populations. As a result, Slawo brought pictures on knowledge, traditions and ancient rituals, with the aim of promoting and giving more visibility to ancestral cultures and highlighting their importance. For Slawo, traditions, cultures and rituals are the foundation of our civilization and our today society. They are reflected in costumes, music, traditional medicine, mystical rituals, etc. and it is important to preserve and protect them so we can live in a well-balanced and a sustainable world.

    Slawo published several books, among them “The Fascinating World of Traditional life”.
