    Full Description

    After Mallorca and the first successful volume of the Green series by teNeues, photographer Patricia Parinejad has now travelled to Namibia and spent time there to capture in impressive photographs the work of a number of environmental projects, sustainability initiatives, green hotels, lodges and camps, conservation and research programmes and local producers, farmers and craftsmen. 

    Together with poetic as well as informative texts this has resulted in the extraordinary illustrated book Green Namibia. A book for and about inspiring people who are helping to keep the green movement going by working towards a more sustainable operation of their hotels, protecting wildlife, producing locally, promoting biodiversity and reducing their carbon footprint at the same time. 

    Patricia Parinejad highlights how we can reconnect more with the natural world and “Mother Earth” on the journey to inspire that all-important sense of awe for Namibia, its deserts and plains, and our planet in general.

    Text in English and German.

    About the Author

    Patricia Parinejad came to Germany as a political refugee during the Iranian revolution at the age of 13. Caught between two conflicting cultures at a sensitive age, growing up wasn’t easy. However, it taught her about cultural belonging, and the need to create an independent personal identity, topics that have fascinated and influenced her throughout her life. Gifted with an adventurous spirit, courage and a natural inquisitiveness and interest in people and places, Patricia has travelled extensively. She has lived in France, Spain, China, the US, and Brazil and speaks six languages fluently.

    “Our way of living today should be open-hearted and responsible, spanning cultures and countries.” Patricia is no onlooker, she engages. Her photographic work centred around architecture, luxury hospitality, design, interiors, sustainability, nature, and wildlife for an international clientele and her relationship with top editors and tastemakers reflects this connectivity, but also her passion for storytelling and discoveries off the beaten tracks. Her artistic work is held in the collections of the Los Angeles Museum of Modern Art, LA, USA and the Oscar Niemeyer Museum in Curitiba, Brazil, in different galleries and collections, both private and public and her photodocumentary about favelas in Rio de Janeiro was part of the Venice Biennale for Architecture. Patricia shares her time between Berlin and Mallorca. She fell in love with the island while creating her book Green Mallorca and has made it her second home. Her close friends love her for her warmth, loyalty, generosity, and for making them laugh like no one else can.
