Traveling the world with the enlightened eyes of a visitor appreciated in more than 140 families in 113 countries, 

Helene Tremblay invites us on an extraordinary journey of human discovery. Using evocative photographs, this gifted storyteller transports us through timeless human experiences. Her presentation and series instill a sense of hope, pride, and belonging, increasing immeasurably our understanding of our human potential. She inspires us to engage in our commitment and to act locally and ultimately challenges us to participate in the “human” evolution.


How does storytelling – the sharing of intimate stories from all over the world – inform us about each other, while speaking to each of us? What are the paradigms, we operate from, that have shaped our ideas and perceptions?

 You have such an amazing eye — your photography is stunning. And your heart, well, we know how big that is:) You are truly a one-of-a-kind woman in the world. I am fortunate to call you my friend.  Your stories are riveting— what you carry and how you see the people of the world is truly breathtaking. And so is your work.

Travels invite new and unexpected experiences into our lives. These experiences serve as opportunities to welcome alternative ways of seeing other and refreshing ways of understanding ourselves. In our global village where our geographical frontiers are less relevant than those limits imposed by fear and misunderstanding of human and cultural differences, this presentation and series serve as a perfect tool to provoke reflection on our unexamined perceptions and beliefs. It stimulates challenging questions and encourages debate.

What a wonderful series! You are a living witness to a slice of humanity that I would never encounter in my daily life.  Your evocative photos and compelling stories are riveting. You have shown me families that appear vastly different from my own, and yet fundamentally, are the same.  Your personal experience of living with so many families around the world provides insight and understanding that could never be found in a book. Thank you for sharing – it was fascinating and I learned so much!

Helene Tremblay traces an unforgettable portrait of those she’s met and how they have changed her life by transforming her way of viewing the world.  She refers to emotional skills such as open-mindedness, tolerance, respect, and empathy. She identifies those similarities inherent to shared human basic needs and invites us to explore our deepest roots and our collective aspirations.

Very inspiring and thought-provoking

International-mindedness is a view of the world in which people see themselves connected to the global community and assume a sense of responsibility to its members. It is an awareness of the inter-relatedness of all nations and peoples, and a recognition of the complexity of these relationships.


It’s an adventure, it’s awakening and it’s human!
