Tiago Ferraro and Fernanda Kiehl invite you to the opening of their photo exhibition on Tuesday 21st August 2018 “Full-time travellers: Why we took this road”.
The Brazilian couple left their stable life in London to search for different perspectives around the world. Half-way through they realised how much they have learned and changed. They decided that this is what they want to do in life: Travel.
Between the end of 2014 and mid-2016, they lived for six months in Kenya, travelled through East Africa both by hitchhiking and on public transport. Spent a month in Iran and hitchhiked to near Finland. In Russia they crossed the whole of the Russian Federation by train, lived for 3 months in Thailand and explored more of South East Asia then finally went back to Brazil.
They see travelling as both a learning experience and an opportunity to immerse themselves in different cultures. They strongly believe in travelling more and travelling better. With this in mind, after travelling for two years consecutively to over 30 countries they are now working towards the re-definition of the word travel, the different types of travellers and the impacts travelling causes.
This exhibition is stage 1 out of 3, where they (through their photos) present what they saw in each country they visited. How it touched them in such way that it either changed their perspective or challenged their beliefs. This in turn made them grow as a human. Therefore, this exhibition is to take you back with them on a trip to share their experience and demonstrate what made them become full time travellers.
Their debut on “Full time travellers: Why we took this road” happened in Parma, Italy in July 2018. Now, they are in London (Hackney Wick to be precise) to continue telling the world to keep traveling more and traveling better.
The opening will happen in the Stour Space, 7 Roach Road, E3 2PA on Tuesday night. During the Pay-As-You-Feel Dinner community night where they prepare food for everybody on a pay-what-you-can basis and all the money goes to a charity. Afterwards, the photos move to the Old Baths Cafe at 80, Eastway, E9.
