12 photos, 4 Asian countries, 6 Buddhist monks, stunning landscapes, 6 smiling children, fascinating cultures and 12 daily moments captured by this great Spanish photographer.

The artistic process of this elegant Red Collection is really interesting:  pictures are taken originally in color, then Tommy Salas transforms them into black & white photos, and finally he makes the original red color stand out.

Tommy Salas’ travel photography is influenced by Steve McCurry, Sebastiao Salgado and Jimmy Nelson.

I admire Tommy Salas because he captures in his photos the particular look, character and ambiance of each country.

But above all, I feel that he really knows how to wait as he looks for the unguarded moment, capturing the essential soul on a person’s face. He seems to reveal their essence and truth!

No need to resort to tricks to take photos… You do not have anyone to pose for the camera. The pictures are there, waiting for you to. The truth is the best shot, the best propaganda.” – Robert Capa.
