I am Luca, an engineer and photographer from Ulm in Germany.
Currently I am on a cycling journey across the Middle East. Apart from simply enjoying the trip I learn Arabic and capture the many people I meet on the road.
Being in the Middle East shows me how diverse the Arabs and their cultures are. It is beautiful to realize that the core values are the same around the world, despite the cultural, economical and social differences.
My experience is that people are good. They want to help and they are curious. Just like me. Through my photographs I want to share and reflect that. Let us trust each other more again and see the good in each of us.
No more cycling but open-minded, kind and warm Iranians. Very diverse landscapes, lots of Beauty in the cities & and a rich Persian culture
