I started reflecting on this as a couple of friends where off to India to do volunteer work and then continue on backpacking, they told em that the local organisation they stayed at asked them for money as they where done with a two month voulnteer trip, although they had already payed a substational amount to the organizing company in Sweden. I started digging around and immedietly found that prices where quite steep and that not much of the money where going to the people who where supposed to get "help". After a couple of weeks in the field shooting this project i started realising that it might not be as much about the money. Its more about the approach and attidue of the volunteers.
I wanted to do a project which reflected more of my own background and culture.And so the focus of this whole series are the actual volunteers. A look in the mirror if you want.
I plan to continue working on this with a trip to south east asia during the end of this year or beginning of 2018.
