THE STORY OF THE TAXI - In february 2009 videojournalist Roel Nollet and photographer Bart De Bock set off to the Cordillera, a mountain region in the north of the Philippines, for a documentary on political killings and disappearances.

Together with Lynn Heye, from the ngo New World, and their local guides, they form the ‘Redhorse team’, named after a popular Philippine beer, that – so goes the myth – is brewed by a Belgian recipe. The team quickly gets the hang of it.

The documentary is called ‘Taxi Filippino’ and gets nominated for the Concentra Award. A prestigious international award for outstanding video journalism.

Meanwhile photographer and cameraman Gieljan van Goethem finishes a roadtrip through Finland. From Helsinki in the south towards Lapland in the high north, he searches for the essence of a journey; forlorn landscapes and rough portraits.

More riders came along. And so Redhorse does not return to the stable. We travel the world on our imaginary horses. They have brought us to the most incredible places in the Philippines, Afghanistan, Greece, Italy, Congo, Senegal, Finland, Lebanon, Rwanda, Israel, Palestine, Benin, Nigeria, Burkina Faso, Puerto Rico, The Dominican Republic, Nicaragua, Belgium, Uganda, Poland, Abchazië, Nagorno-Karabach, Belarus, Ukraine, Iraqi Kurdistan and many others.
