During February of 2011, we traveled to Colombia’s Caribbean coast, and the city of Cartagena. Famous for its colonial history and as the home of author Gabriel Garcia Marquez, Cartagena is a storybook setting. Rich with color and diversity, I was drawn to the people of this place as much or more so than the scenery and architecture. There is a unique and contagious energy associated with life in the equatorial tropics, where the days are long and the nights longer, all unfolding under one continuous season.
My intention for these images is to convey, as much as possible, a sense of place for Cartagena, and a feel for the passions and vivacity of its residents. It is a city to which we will undoubtedly return.
