Getting to know Eliane Band

I have always wanted to travel and see the world from the peak of a mountain, filled with wisdom. Until I went to Nepal, the place that changed my life with its philosophy courses and transformative encounters. People say I am brave because I go out into the world on my own in search of cultures that complete and inspire me.

Photography came my way quietly and surprisingly, as a means of recording my complete enchantment with the strength and beauty of those people who crossed my path. By the stories of courage and overcoming adversity of those remote people, who moved me and propelled me so much. I began to photograph inspired by this power of life, by their touching stories, by this tribute of humanity that I had and have the honor of seeing, living, feeling. Photography is my path of discovery, learning and expansion.

Now, after five years of living and traveling in Asia, I want to share the knowledge I have gained so that it may help people achieve their dreams, even if they seem impossible or frightening. That's what I did when I decided to embrace that so-called courage to discover this part of the world, then so distant from me. I did it and I don’t want to stop anymore.

I’m also a graduate in tourism, with a postgrad in marketing and cultural marketing. I devoted myself to the fine arts for a number of years and followed that with years working in communication companies.


Book Forgotten Worlds

A journey through Asia

Launched in 2015 by Luste editors, the book is the result of years of dedication and travel research in search of how ethnic minorities live in their forgotten worlds. It is the fruit of my enchantment and respect for those peoples who maintain their traditions and for all that we have left along the way, such as compassion, integrity and solidarity.
