Soon after moving to Mexico City 15 rapid years ago, I took some time to wander the streets with my Holga 120. The Holga is a fun 20$ plastic camera that is a little unpredictable. The plastic lens gives a sense of distance from the subjects that transmitted something of how I felt entering into this new culture, life and language. I look back on these images and feel a deep appreciation for the people, places, and experiences that continue to shape who I am.  In the harsh chaotic existence, a kind and shared humanity makes life real.
