Bogota, capital of Colombia, has a population about 9 millions. Is the city that I was born and I want to show the everydayness, chaos and more through of my Fujifilm camera.

Stuff, signs, people, contrast and reflections that aren´t noticeable are my main fountain of inspiration in this photo series.Glances, silhouettes, movements and perspectives reflect a city full of life and contrasts where the photography is important to build a memory of who we are as the citizens.
