About

Peponi is like an old friend. A Swahili word meaning paradise. I named my sailboat Peponi. I named my digital media company Peponi. And now it is my photography and film business.

My recent design project, Casa J at Chachalaka on the Pacific Coast of Mexico

 
 

I have traveled extensively off the beaten path. A love of beaches influenced many destinations and led to my project at Chachalaka on the Costalegre of Mexico. It may be the last undeveloped stretch of Mexican coast on the Pacific Ocean. I have designed and built a contemporary, minimalist house Casa J, that has been recognized for its architecture. Chachalaka is a place to escape - sitting above twelve miles of virgin beach with unmatched views and close to nature. Starting in 2017 I will be taking photos and video of people across the United States, it is a project that I call "An American Mosaic". - John Van Dyke
