Friday evening June 28th at 20.00, more then 100 people in theater Unique listen to an indigenous welcome song and dance performed by cultural group Wayono. The singers, musicians and dancers are dressed in bright colored indigenous clothing.
After their welcome, Milton enters the floor and takes the audience on a photographic journey through Suriname showing the day to day life of the indigenous peoples. It was a journey with surprises and amazement for the audience. After his talk, cultural group Wayono took the stage again for some more dancing and music.
After the presentation, people had the opportunity to buy a book which Milton happily signed.
It has taken us a couple of days to pack and post all the books and photoprints to our Kickstarter backers. We have also sent off more then 200 books to Suriname for the indigenous peoples portrayed.
Next step is to book our tickets to Suriname, to deliver the more than 200 books to the indigenous portrayed by ourselves. And after buying our tickets, we will start the promotion of our book with the goal to send another large batch of books by the end of April to those who are interested in photography, Suriname and/or indigenous peoples.
