While Covid has disrupted the whole world, stranded backpackers are volenteering at a Hippie Festival in Golden Bay. New Zealand is a 'safe' country and most of 'normal life' continued. For many backpackers it was not possible to return to their countries and others requested for permits to stay. This Hippie Festival was even so more special in this Covid stricken world.
Love and peace.

Ingetje Tadros occupies a unique place in the world of social documentary photography, capturing the triumphs, tragedy and diversity of people’s lives through her intuitive storytelling.
With a passion deeply rooted in humanitarian causes, her photography is often confronting and provocative to evoke a powerful message, telling people’s stories firstly at a community level and then to provide a conduit for communication between different cultures on a global platform.
