I am Mark, a professional travel photographer, technically a digital nomad. I’ve taken the nomadic lifestyle to a near-absolute level, seldom staying in one place for more than a few days, although often enough retracing my steps and returning to the locations I liked. And when I started living on the move, at the age of 18, digital technologies were scarce. Are there any analogue nomads? If so, that’s what I used to be before the upgrade some ten years ago. For the last four years, I’ve been calling Indonesia “my base country” – the closest thing to a home I can imagine. Previously, I’ve lived in Thailand for another four years. Before that, I have spent a year or less in almost every other Southeast Asian country, and traveled extensively all over Asia, plus visited Africa and Latin America a number of times. Asia remains my favourite continent. Speciality: ethnography, particularly animist beliefs in Asian cultures. Hobbies: trekking, mountaineering, climbing and photographing active volcanoes, writing sci-fi stories and poetry.
