A Personal Project: Color
For many hours over several days, I dragged my husband, Eli, around the center of Mérida to hunt for colorful facades. His recollection of high school Spanish is thankfully much sharper than mine so he taught me to say "es una bonita fachada" in response to the quizzical stares at my enthusiastic photo taking. The facades were pretty but really I wanted to reorder them into a rainbow with a progression of shades, like a city of pantone swatches.
A few of my favorite photos from photographing this series are available as prints via The Shot Collective. All the proceeds from the sales go to benefit Direct Relief.
