People are beautiful and people are incredibly important. Everyone has a story, everyone has motivations and reasons for why they behave a certain way of feel as they do. People are not one-dimensional and they have intricate layers to them.
My Chilean adventure last year was more about self-discovery and was a lesson in self-growth. This year, I learned a lot more about people and relationships. This year I was able to allow myself to learn to be in and enjoy people's presence far more than I had before. The photographer in me felt the need to capture the beauty I was beginning to see, and so I began slowly compiling photographs of various people around the station. As a photographer, it is my job to tell those people's stories through my lens. When I photograph people, I want to capture their personality and their essence.
Unfortunately, I was not able to photograph everyone, but I have plans for my next visit, most likely a series.
The photos below are in the order in which they were taken, with the exception of the last two. All photos were taken by me except the third and fourth to last photo (taken by Allie Tissot) and the last photo (taken by Claudio Catalán).
