Hope 🇬🇧

October 16, 202314:30Ambassador Room


Pie’s story is a story about hope, about what can be achieved when people work together.  It’s a story that inspires people to question how they can contribute to building a better world for our children. The main narrative is that, ‘if we want to save nature, we should save people first’, a philosophy he deeply believes in and that starts to gain more traction on a global scale.

After more than 15 years of fieldwork all across the African continent and beyond, as a photographer as well as an activist, Pie has developed an intricate understanding of, connection with and passion for documenting the last wild corners of our planet. His travels have taken him around the entire planet, documenting unique stories with a strong focus on the intersection between wildlife and humans.

Pie beliefs the soothing and healing power of art can be an incredibly powerful tool in restoring our lost connections. His first best-selling book ‘Tales from the Roads less Traveled’ was published by teNeues in 2019 and sold 8000 copies worldwide. He is based in Amsterdam where he lives together with his girlfriend and writer Jessica Wintz and their daughter.

If we want to save nature, we should save people first.
