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!

Guyana, South America

This May, Jonathan Machado and I had the pleasure of working in Guyana, South America.  Neither one of us had ever been to this unique country located just north of Brazil and east of Venezuela. The most interesting part of this experience was immersing myself within the heterogeneous, mixed demographics. The ethnic groups are Indian, African, European, Chinese, and the Indigenous. The two largest are the Indo-Guyanese (from India) and Afro-Guyanese (from Africa).  So, you get to see beautiful Indian architecture and dance to Caribbean rhythms all in one place. We got to eat Creole and Curry dishes, share laughs with our new friends Ryan and Jermaine, and of course document the entire trip.  You can visit Jonathan’s photoblog to view his lovely stills from our travels.  The video we worked on will be up soon as well. Enjoy!
