Nikonian Northern Exposure #19
Seeing the World through Allen MyersGetting out in Wolfville in November I met Allen Myers who was in town for the Devour Film Festival in Wolfville. Allen's film Col Di Rocca was shown, made in Vendemmai Italia. Allen was hanging up his outdoor exhibit which immediately caught my attention! Allen Myers is a unique and talented photographer, film maker, writer and humanitarian. On January 15th, 2006, he made a life changing decision to change something in the world. With a backpack of clothes, a camera and a journal he headed to Turino Italy which was the first of many destinations.
The artistry and vision of his work takes shape as he weaves himself into the communities in which he discovers. He works with, lives with and feels with the peoples he later captures on film and in stories. Nomadsight is a temporary street art instalment of world photography, it moves from city to city and in the manner grows in its collection. Nomasight.com is a photography travel blog about Allen's global adventures.
Supported by the loving people of the earth, these photographs tell the stories.
