This book is a document of the diaspora of Indo-European descendants worldwide. A story of people that you have never heard of, do not where they actually come from and cannot find in today’s schoolbooks.
My name is Armando Ello and I am a photographer and I produce and make books. My last book was about Indo-European descendants of whom you couldn’t guess where they come from. At least in most countries, people don’t have a clue and I want to change that.
The books I am working on now is one about Indos worldwide and a book about redhead Indos.
The awareness of this specific heritage and history is starting to grow, but we have to be fast. Now is the time to ask the elderly first-generation first hand about our family history. This window is closing and now is the opportunity to ask and tell about our past.
This book, Indoworld, will be a time capsule about the generation now and what their identity is. Whether they still carry on the Indo-European culture or not so much anymore.
We are all part of a bigger story.
A story worth telling the people around us, about who we are and what we can learn from our family histories.
Those histories are the building blocks of the national histories and we can still learn from it to know more about ourselves.
Indoworld will reflect the lives of Indo-European descendants who chose a different route in life. Who went outside the Netherlands.
Who were born in other countries, states or cities or migrated to a different future. The one thing we have in common is our history, but does this still have an effect on their lives as individuals?
Last year I crowdfunded this world project production.
Now I am asking you for your help to publish this book worldwide as well and print more copies to boost this mission.
The goal is to publish the first batch of 750 books. I want to republish the first book Twijfelindo as well and if we can get the goal amount even a third book of a parallel project about Indo’s with the redhead DNA.
This would be the biggest photography project of its kind about the Indo community worldwide. Published in a trilogy.
Help me to presell this book to you and the Indos worldwide. Order your copy or a copy for your fam worldwide and spread the word. So you can show others what your heritage and history is.
I ask you for your help.
Order a book, and help me publish not one, not 2 but 3 books!
The revised version of the sold-out book ‘Twijfelindo’
The book about Indos worldwide.
And a book specifically about Indo’s with red hair Ramboet Djagung which I am producing at the same time as my Indofriend WillemJan.
So benefit to become the owner of this biggest photography project
You can also help me share this message because during this campaign I am photographing Indo’s for the book as we speak!
By sharing, you will help me find more Indo’s in the cities I have left to visit.
If you consider a donation to buy a book or just to support you’ll get a free photoshoot with me in my studio in the Netherlands.
