TED GRAMBEAU PHOTOGRAPHY
One of my great loves is to document, to tell stories of people, places, events and culture as seen through my lens. It's a great ecstasy, as if seeing the world for the first time - such a raw expression. Unguarded, distilled are these moments – to document life with photography, the unchallenged truth of story telling through creative expression.
Trekking the jungle, unsure as to what lay ahead, with stories of hypnotic trance, spiritual ceremony and tribal rituals. To discover the powerful chants of shamanic traditions of Sumatran tribes, primal Asmat warriors of Irian Jaya, New Guinea, rhythmic drumming ceremony in Kerala, South India and the tribal celebrations under the Banyan tree at Enkatala Village, Tanna Island in Vanuatu.
A lot of my earlier travels were captured on medium format film of which currently exist in my archival files and are yet to be unveiled – I will be releasing these images in the future.
