Photos by Patrick Alonso

The photo editor from a well-known photography publication likened my work to that of a tourist equipped with any decent camera … a work, he added, lacking in visual interest.

Rather than let myself be brought down and dragged any longer than I should in the confusion and doubt that introspection can bring upon one’s mind, rather than going off half-cocked in search of a new style, rather than simply stay on my first though “this guy is an imbecile”, I’ve decided to embrace the words as truth.

I am a tourist.

This project, an exploration of the city I live in, is the consequence of this realization.

“wandering, the main means of communicating with the city.”
