A shoe maker once told me we have to take care of our shoes, they protect our feet, our feet carries our body that carries our head….
There was nothing else about his story, but he taught me the value of craftsmanship and dedicating a lifetime to making sure people protect their heads…
Aftermath : Fire
I arrive to the area where the Woolsey Fires burned with a raging force, the smell of charred land is too intense that after being outside of my car for a couple of minutes my lungs start to demand clean air.
There is no one around, no cars drive by and no life remains.
The powerful fires that burned 100,000 acres left nothing but a trail of destruction and a sinking feeling of hopelessness.
I begin to ask myself questions, Is this the way we are supposed to live? How can we ever be safe from a natural disaster?
Deep down I know this will happen again.
This is a collection of images that show the aftermath of a deadly fire that not only showed us the power of nature, but also that reminds us of our own mortality and our vulnerability as a species.
This is the aftermath.
In the current political climate where diversity is being threatened and where those who are “different” are being persecuted, the Caribbean community in California goes outs and parties like there is no tomorrow to show the oppressors they are full of life and joy despite their efforts to separate, and hurt their communities.

Barberia Vicenc Moreto
In the heart of Barcelona, Spain there is magical place. A place where old meets young, where innovation and old school techniques collide. A universe where hair is the only currency and Vicenc Moreto it’s the master of the trade.
The story of a barbershop that shaped my life, and my passion for photography.
