Portrait Park Philosopher




All the parks of any city or town has one. These portraits of Rodrigo were shot close to home in the colonial town of Santa Fe de Antioquia, a one hour drive from Medellin where I am based. Rodrigo was drinking chicha, a homemade fermented beverage derived from maize (corn). He kindly posed for me in good spirits while we talked about life.
