About the Collection: Arno presents the medium of photography and hand-painted photography as a means of engaging philosophical disquisitions on culture, humankind, and wildlife inspired by his diverse experience and extensive traveling across various continents.

He is able to focus on the simplicity and purity of the lives of indigenous peoples who are connected to the environment and depend upon its natural resources for survival. The relationships and connections Arno is able to realise in photographing people, wildlife and moments in time, have imbued his spirit with a quest for humanity and awakened his senses to the power and beauty of these diverse cultures and the natural world.
