Cal Reiet is more than a hotel. It’s more than a holistic retreat escape. It’s a family. And everyone involved in this beautiful project is unique. We believe in the power of people, in the power of doing good things for others and in the power of healing as a group, because empathy is what’s most important to build up. So now we have decided to introduce the Cal Reiet team members individually for you to get to know them better, to understand their background and to discover why they are working with us at Cal Reiet. Here goes the third ‘meet the team’ article!
Pär Olsson is a photo journalist, a traveller and a lover of discovering new experiences. He sees the world through his camera. Since a young age he has been traveling the world to meet people in remote corners of the globe. His passion for truly getting to know his subject extends beyond his photography. In fact, his photography is an extension, a tool with which to capture his real life connection with the subject. Pär Olsson’s work includes projects, portraying indigenous people in Bangladesh and vulnerable young women in Argentina. The latter was featured in an exhibition at the Palma Photo Festival 2014. Accirding to him, his photography brings him closer to a reality while working.
His curiosity has brought him to Mallorca which has been his home for five years. Moving to Mallorca brought him closer to nature and a holistic lifestyle. The magic of taking a meditation walk in the mountains of the Tramuntana, or sailing along the eastern coast discovering its little coves is true happiness for him.
Pär Olsson calls him self a lifestyle photographer and continues to travel on commissions from newspapers and magazines. The focus is often on food and to his delight he can see a steady trend towards sustainable living around Europe.
