In September 2012 I was approached by Council of Europe.

They said, that they have found my photograph on the internet, and kindly asked if they could use some of them for a larger project they had running.  The project was Autobiography of Intercultural Encounters.

The photographs were to be used as illustrations for a self-study program.  I had no objections, and when the program opened in December 2013, it contained 47 photographs. All recently shot in Europe.

Most of the photos you find in this book. I am in the process of marking them. When you find “COE” written behind the number of the photograph, it means that the picture is included in Autobiography of Intercultural Encounters.

Council of Europe is a huge organisation that was established shortly after the Second World War to advocate democracy, human rights and peace. Today, it consists of 47 Europeans states covering some 820 million people. Yes, that is the population of larger Europe.

There will be a virtual exhibition of the photos in Strasbourg in the end of April 2014, and I will try to have exhibitions in other Europeans cities, as well.

I am grateful and honoured to be a part of Autobiography of Intercultural Encounters. It is a long term project that has only seen the very beginning of things.
