"As a cameraman the color of Kenya did not only come to me through the viewfinder but also through the people. I could feel their touch, smell, and their infinite love for their existence.
Their daily activities took place just a few feet away; I could smell their trance as they where dancing, I could feel their pride as they live as warriors; I have tasted the blood they drink and danced their tribal dances with them.. This experience has become part of my way of living, a knowledge of pure awareness of nature and its creator".


'Eye on.....' is a series of documentaries which celebrates the huge natural diversity of this planet by looking through the lens of wildlife photographer Dos Winkel.

In 'Eye on Kenya' the team journeys across Kenya on a month expedition exploring its most remote parts, inaccessible to most people. From the intriguing in-depth look into the ritual experience of the Laibon, the most important prohet of the Maasai community to the shrinking tropical mountain forest of Marsabit, the desert refuge of a large group of elephants… to the petrified forest of Koobi Fora, home of the croc hunting El Molo tribeure.

First destination is Peru, where we follow every move that Dos Winkel makes on his search for the perfect picture. We traveled for 2 months to shoot six elmolopeopleepisodes of this nature adventure.

This documentary, commissioned by SPERI (Social Policy and Ecology Research Institute) A production of 3 episodes--Also available as a feature documentary in DVD format RT 1h20’--The long road to Nasai -- The spirit of MaLieng -- The boundary stones of the Hmong Territory. Nassai is an isolated village in the mountainous region of Northern Vietnam. It took a long time for villagers to reach the nearby district centre over a narrow and treacherous dirt road. But things have changed since construction of a road has dislodged the village. This documentary will show how people can benefit from development and at same time become a victim of this development. Parallels with other once secluded villages (Ta Phin) will be shown to illustrate the devastating effects of unchecked development. The work of SPERI will become apparent through the stories. SPERI's activities will be inserted in the documentary in a way that it does not take an overly dominant position but at the same time becomes a crucial factor of support. Where possible, the events will be told through the mouth of the villagers, and not through a foreign spokesperson, to make the story more authentic and powerful.
