Kumar 3
Kumar with Chandradeva

For those who had the pleasure of his company, Kumar was like a big brother and possibly one of the most caring, sincere, joyful and graceful people to walk this planet. I certainly felt blessed to have learnt from him.


This photo is from my fondest memory of many wonderful experiences we had together in Maharashtra, in 1994. He bought a lovely old Enfield and we drove around India, dodging monkeys and trucks, listening to techno for days on end, ending up in Goa and living life fully and very humbly.

Over the last few years he became a monk in Thailand, which doesn’t surprise me in the least as he always shone like a Buddha, and died peacefully in his sleep in the monastery at the age of 49.

Photos thanks to Daniel, Leonie and Gyana


He lived with us in the Berlin commune. Very nice guy, who enjoyed his fisheye lens and taking many photos. Some of me and others. He had a real good talent with it. Too soon ♥️
