Destination

I usually never tag locations when I post photos — I think it distracts the viewers away from the actual subject and I don’t find it to be useful information. It’s also a way for me to celebrate how every corner of the world can be special without judgement or prejudice. I want people to appreciate what they’re seeing for what it is instead of labeling. I decided to bring a black & white roll of film with me on the trip to capture the rawness and realness of the place rather than showing the paradise/white sand beaches/perfect vacation spot kind of imagery, like “don’t you wish you were here right now??” (which we are bombarded with!! it can be annoying at times haha). I only shot locals living their everyday lives, people working at a resort cleaning away the seaweed on the beach, locals swimming in the ocean with their clothes on, cows eating grass or goats chilling on the side of the road.
