Markets Around the World: Quito, Ecuador

Whenever I travel to far away lands, a main priority on my agenda is to stop at the local markets. Within each city of every country there are unique characteristics. These details are vivid as you walk through the stalls where vendors and locals gather and share their cherished and most used items: tropical fruits or coconut broom sticks, Mediterranean spices and lanterns, or wine, cheese, and paintings… My photo series of “Markets Around the World” are representations of the uniqueness of individual cultures and the basic need for human interaction, exchange and communion.

Living in corporate America where we stroll through mega supermarket chains, grocery carts in tow in search of the next best processed product of artificially preserved “goods” sealed in boxes or cans, has made me appreciate these places in which the natural, pure, hand crafted are still regarded with value and esteem. For me, shopping in supermarkets feels more like a chore compared to shopping in small markets where you can experience real human synergy instead of the mandatory “Here’s your receipt, Thank you.”

Here are some photos taken with my Iphone in Quito, Ecuador!

Wanderlustin’

What inspired this video I created with the help of Nik Martinez was the simple thought of how powerful “Wanderlusting” truly is.  I constantly encourage all of my loved ones to wander through unknown lands because I truly feel as though it is the most powerful way to acquire knowledge. Traveling more brings us a different type of awareness, one that removes us from our stagnant comfort zones. One that makes us realize how connected human beings really are. It makes you see the fact that we are slowly moving away from the concept of collectivism, and being driven towards more individualistic ideals instead.

The concept of the video is related to the experience of traveling itself. One doesn’t really know how each part (or place visited) fits together until the very end of the journey, once it has been seen from the holistic perspective.

“We shall not cease from exploration

And the end of all our exploring

Will be to arrive where we started

And know the place for the first time.”

-T.S. Elliot
