Katy’s Photo Essay
I chose these photos because they will remind me of all the feelings and thoughts I do not want to forget about this experience in the years to come. I want to share these photos with you, so you can see what I saw and so you can understand just how incredible the summer sky is below the equator, or how the graffiti becomes art… so you can see what is means for me to be alive in this crazy, artistic, and beautiful world.

I hoped to capture the vibrations of the color, and the emotion of the souls I shot on camera. What follows are what I produced from such inspiration.
