My favorite way to travel is with my camera. I am not a professional photographer, but as an artist it allows me to slow down and primarily focus upon my vision as opposed to other experiences that are sometimes difficult when traveling.
In May, a group of nine artists/photographers took a trip to Oaxaca, Mexico. It was organized by Professor Gary Goldberg from Midwestern University in Texas. The purpose was to interact with various craftspeople and professional photographers. In order to return something to the community, we held an auction of our best work (I chose: A Backlit Market Stall) and gave the results to an organization that helps children with cancer.
Below are other photographs that I made from some of the craftspeople that we visited.
