A day trip to Paris

Bruno_Trouble_2015_flat_web_v

The reason for this day trip to Paris was Bruno Troublé the mastermind of the Louis Vuitton Cup,  a very charismatic personality in the international sailing world.

He did spend part of his life organising sailing events, negotiating contracts, and sailing on many differnt boats.

Some years ago when I landed the first time in Auckland I saw the advertisement from Louis Vuitton
“To sail in the Americas’ Cup you first have to win the Louis Vuitton Cup” a clear and strong message.

I still remember the days as a young Laser sailor training on the lake Lugano spending every few years the nights in front of the TV watching the Louis Vuitton Cup, followed then by the America’s Cup.
At that time it seemed a world so far away.

1.3 Billion Individuals

image

China with his 1.3 billion habitants is the most populated country in
the world and its national population density (137/km2) is similar to
our Swiss density.

Looking at the numbers is impressive but never as much as watch-
ing the crowds in the big city. I sometimes have the feeling like
standing if front of  ant colony a formicary where the individual
seems to get’s lost. But if you pick out a few they are individuals like
we with there own dreams, hopes, friends etc.

In my next trips to China I will do more portraits and discover more
of this faces.
