Embedded in many worlds, cultures, and traditions, Varial is naturally driven and attracted to extreme journeys, remote places, tribes, and threatened cultures, obsessed by untold realities, rare captured moments, simple but singular realities, and striving for the sublime.

Varial sees the world with great compassion and intimacy. His work has a universal quality and blends both documentary and portraiture at the same time. Accomplished and clear in his artistic vision, his images are stunning and expressive, as they portray dignity and beauty as well as hardship within the culture he has documented.
