Ongoing body of work
Started in 2018
The New Living series is a body of work about the aesthetics and structures of newly built upper-middle class neighborhoods rising up on the outskirts of Barranquilla, Colombia. When I first went out to photograph these isolated gated communities from the outside it was one attempt to get a better feeling for this part of the city. Normally in order for me to settle in a new place I am used to walk its streets, observe and map its dynamics and rhythms. In Barranquilla that is not always as easy as it is in other cities because security can be a big issue in certain parts of it. Between these high rising residential buildings I get a chance to search for images that capture the neighborhoods structures, dynamics and architectures and its promises of a New Living.
