photograph by Daniel Licht
This photo was taken with FujiChrome Slide film in Daniel’s 13 Year old Lomo. It was cross-processed, a method of developing slide film as if it was regular film. This brings out the colors and causes more contrast.
It was taken on Daniel’s second trip to Bogotá. He spent 2 weeks working and living in the city. He got to travel around with one of his best friends, Alejandro (as in @zemogalejo) and experience the city. Alejo was just leaning on the wall and there was a great collection of posters that had been layered on top of each other. Dan tends to shoot a lot from the hip and he thinks this turned out well.
‘Plaza de Bolivar’ is the main square in Bogota. In the past, peasants would take their products and sell them to the people in Bogota. The square has radically changed and it is now an important political center for Bogota.
