The beginning / by william vazquez


I met this cast of characters on a road trip through Rajasthan I organized in November 2017. Being stuck with some like minded people for almost three weeks created some very interesting conversations over paneer masala. The biggest theme was photography of course....How can we do more relevant work?, How can we get more attention paid to the causes we dedicate ourselves to?, How can we collaborate? and so on....So it went like this for almost three weeks. As the end of the trip came, and we were working together on an NGO project it became clear that the way to go was to find a way to work together in a more organized fashion. A couple of weeks after we got back home "explorate" was born in an Indian restaurant on 27th street and 2nd ave in NYC where we started over some paneer masala.

It's going to be interesting!
