Rajasthan. The Thar dessert. With me forever. Days and days and days of travelling dusty tracks and meeting people with such a sense of humanity, connectivity and a heart larger than the expanse that I covered in all my trekking.
The stick collector is a nod to NZ artist Warren Viscoe, who's sculpture named The Stick Collector I own with my wife, juxtaposed with the hardship of being the stick collector in the Thar dessert for your village where trees and sticks are rare and as treasured as golden nuggets.
