This photo was taken with a Sony DSC-S60.
‘Parque el Virrey’ is one of the most beautiful places in the city, it is very quiet but there is also a lot going on. People go there to exercise, bike, run or do some yoga.
This park is one of Carlos’ favorite places. It has a lot of green in it and you can breathe in peace. However, when you just turn your head around what you will see is people rushing everywhere. When you are in the park, it feels that time stops, allowing you to realize what surrounds you, and your inner self.
This photo belongs to a series that Carlos took waking up very early on Sundays, the idea was not to have people in the photos, emulating Eugene Atget’s work. In this type of photo, architecture stands allowing the viewer to feel proximity with the space.
