Portraits of: Barcelona

BCN13_7_027                                                                       Barcelona, 2013 (Fuji Neopan 400)

Alejandra was brought up in Chile but has been living in Barcelona for the past 10 years. She speaks a thousand miles a minute, translating much of the Spanish language and quirks into English, but always listens to what others say. She taught me things that were simple yet profound – for example, whilst many of us may naturally shun touters on streets, she never ignores them because to her, they are human beings who deserve the basic form of respect; an acknowledgement of their existence by telling them “no, thank you” no matter what they were trying to sell/do.

I hope this picture captures the fire of her spirit, a fire to enjoy life to the fullest and be true to herself…and love.
