Book presentation in Paramaribo, Suriname

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.

All books have been shipped off to our Kickstarter supporters

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.

Points of Recognition will be published!

We spend thirty days of intense communication, answering many e-mails and messages, sending out an equal amount of e-mails and messages, but it was worth it!

We raised over 16.000 euro of the 15.000 needed for our first edition.

The next step is finalizing the manuscript and get our book printed by Graphius in Belgium.
