Three Amigos

These three little guys just loved horsing around and following me as we checked out the school in the village in Nichnamtic, Chiapas, Mexico. They wanted to see every shot that I made on the little screen on the back of the camera. I think I had more fun on this day than they did. The paper in their hand is a sketch that they did. You can just feel the life, love and hope in these kids. Now that Escalera has completed six new classrooms in their village they have a little more hope of escaping the crushing poverty that they live in but there is always so much more to do.

In 2011 Jonathan Look decided to change his life and pursue adventures instead of comfort and possessions. His goal is to travel the world solo; one country at a time, one year at a time. To accomplish this he got rid of most of his possessions, packed up what little he saw as necessities and headed out. His goal is to spend ten years discovering new places, meeting new people and taking the time to learn about them, their values and their place on this tiny planet. He embraces the philosophy that says a person is the sum of their experiences and rejects the fraud of modern consumerism that makes people into slaves of their consumption. He doesn't intend to be modern day ascetic, just more mindful of his place in the world and to make decisions according to that new standard.
