Hil Vanderwaal (Associate of the Royal Photographic Society), Dutch-born, currently living in the Sultanate of Oman (Middle East), has travelled through and lived in various countries in the world. Wherever he is, he tries to get entrance to communities that are in general not easy to reach, or take time to settle in. Be it tribal life in remote Borneo, Bedouins in Oman's desert, Buddhist temple life in NorthEast Thailand, family life behind the walls of a traditional Moroccan village, small scale farm life in Scotland, or areas with labourers in India. He is also a keen landscape and street photographer. He shoots both digital, and Medium Format analogue. Workshops with Hil Vanderwaal are organised in the French Dordogne, around the summer months.
