10 days at Laoximen

After creating the 10 days at “The Bund” in Shanghai I came up with another idea to explore another region of the city, as I had already done the first project and set out for the second, where I explored a disappearing Shanghai region, which is the Laoximen region, a completely different project from the first one since the first one you perceived the most modern side of shanghai city already in that of Laoximen I tried to explore the old and old houses where people are still living, the local trade and the Chinese style sales. The cool thing about this project that I always went to in the morning would end up arriving at times where people were just waking up and me photographing there, probably people thinking what he’s doing this time doing photography, and me having a lot of fun. In this project I took with me a great friend who lives in Shanghai Alex Pollnow, he is a great photographer and he liked the idea and decided to get together to shoot, cool in shooting with friends you can share the experience and see how it goes stay the next project, I like to go alone, but if the person knows my style and knows how I shoot, I see no problem coming along, that’s how I invited Alex, I think at most to go out shooting has to be two people, if it doesn’t end up messing up. I hope you enjoy this 10 day project in Laoximen.

 

 

 

10 days in the bund

That was one of the coolest projects I’ve done to date, I woke up every day around 5 am and headed for one of Shanghai’s bundle postcards, I did it in 10 straight days using different types of movies to see The differences, these movies were old movies used in the production of movie films. I liked the project because besides shooting that is something that I like a lot, I ended up doing and discovering the life that you have in that place, it’s unbelievable but people go there every day to exercise or photograph, it was a learning that I’ll take to all my life and hope you enjoy the outcome of this 10 day battle in one of China’s postcards.

 

Uruguay

I went to Brazil to spend 10 days, getting there I enjoyed the weekends, but ending the weekends usually everyone has to go back to work and I got lost there during the week thinking what I could do, could have stayed at home doing nothing, but as I want to know new places and new cultures, I invited my niece who had just finished school and my mother to get in the car and go to Uruguay, I thought it would be a close trip, but they were almost 20h driving, a lot, I got tired but I managed to get to the capital of the country, passing by the beaches and exploring this country that I call piece of Europe in South America.

 

Islamic Republic of Iran

The trip to Iran was something that we scheduled at the last minute, we were wanting to go somewhere during the Chinese New Year holiday, but we didn’t know where, since I already knew almost everywhere and Iran was always a country that I was interested in going, out of nowhere we bought the ticket from China to Iran and went on to explore that country, but one thing I never expected to happen in my life happened on my arrival when I set foot inside the immigration from Iran my passport was not in my pocket, and now what I would do since it was there and could not enter the country, we called the embassy, we prayed we did everything that had to be done, after 7 am inside the airport a gentleman came running and handed me my passport, story that I never want to pass again, but good that everything went well and we went to explore this amazing country and what I can share with you is the photos of this trip.

Black And White Photographers In Iceland

This trip to Iceland was something that I put in my head that I had to go there to explore this island and ended up doing it, my wife rented a car in the capital and went for a walk around the island, camping and exploring the maximum. This beautiful place has to offer, the cool thing is that the island of Iceland is not very big, but every few kilometers you have a very wide range of beauties, from nowhere you see a beautiful green moss and after a few minutes driving you to see a giant iceberg, the vegetation is variation is very large and you can see and see amazing places, in this project I decided to shoot only black and white to give the contrast of cold and climate that this place has to offer to the visitors, follows the pictures.

Democratic People’s Republic of Korea

I was always curious about visiting North Korea, but I was always wondering if I should go or not, after seeing some people going I made myself available and went there to check what was really around, I took a train from Beijing and went to the city bordering the country and alone took a group of Chinese businessmen who were going and embarked on this 5 day adventure inside the country. One of the most amazing experiences I’ve ever had in my life since it’s not any day that you can enter a country as closed as North Korea. At first, I thought it was simpler, but when I was discovering and understanding how the country’s regime was closed. Of course, you don’t go out and discover the country, I did a tour as everyone does with a guide where I could only see what was really interesting for tourists and probably not the reality of the place, but anyway it was very interesting and I let the photos speak for themselves.
