Story info

This reportage is a series of portraits of people in Geneva who lived in many places across the world. A nomad is a member of a community who frequently moves to satisfy the needs for his/her living. A “new” nomad, in this context, does not move around to find food for the livestock, rather he/she frequently moves to satisfy the intellectual curiosity and career ambitions. These migrants do not leave their country out of poverty, but instead they are fortunate enough to follow their dreams and beliefs. They are young, well-educated individuals.

The new nomads are captured in their homes. This personal environment is the widow to everyone’s life: it express what one values in terms of creativity, family, money et cetera. Through the details in the images one can find how new nomads express themselves.
