"Gino Zardo is a photographer and field recordist born to Italian parents in Australia in 1968. He lives In New York and has worked with some of the world's most prominent photographers for 18 years. Walking East is his debut release. Janek Schaefer is a sound artist/musician from London Walking East is a photographic sound portrait of my travels through the North Western provinces of India, the Himalayas of Nepal and the Island of Papua New Guinea I set out to explore, through the people I met, the way in which my photographs and sound recordings could magnify a sense of time and place. I began the project in January 1999, covering 50,000 miles through the vast contrasting landscapes over the next year. I found myself trekking for days before I would reach a remote village, a western desert, a tropical monsoon, or a dense jungle. Camping along the way and living amongst the families and tribes, I was able to experience their daily lives and acquire an understanding of their histories and cultures. I found many similarities as I documented a variety of people as they performed in music festivals, worked in steel mills, sold their wares in markets, and celebrated their tribal rituals together. The presence of community, hardship, joy and survival are universal."
