Kerry van der Jagt.
Kerry van der Jagt is a multi-awardwinning Sydneybased travel writer and photographer. Over the last decade she has explored the far-flung corners of the globe on foot, horseback, kayak, skis and expedition cruise ship, bringing back stories on how we can all travel more responsibly. She believes that the best way to understand a new culture is to travel slowly and purposefully, allowing enough time for total immersion. Her recent trip to Oaxaca, Mexico, for the annual Day of the Dead threw her headfirst into the preparation, protocols and face painting, which are part of the country’s biggest celebration.
