The Faces of Cuenca – Cuenca, Ecuador
I’ve found myself fascinated by the people of Cuenca! Not just how kind and friendly most of them are, but how charismatic they are visually. Since I’ve been here, I’ve challenged myself to take a number of Cuencano portraits (mostly candids) that tell a story while showing the subjects as the amazing people they are. I hope you like them and wonder about their stories as much as I have!
Lol! Cell phone case just like Larry’s! Great pics as usual…..was expecting your post…..after all…..its 5:30 somewhere……
We like imagining you sitting there with a glass of red wine awaiting the ding of the 5:30 bell…
Nice photos. They tell a lot about this town.
Yep, though I do find myself taking photos of older folk and babies mostly – perhaps they are just more expressive? Or maybe I’m less worried about them noticing me taking their photos!
These are great shots Aaron !!! Maybe a book at the end of your travels ?
Thanks! A book would be amazing, though I never did get signed release forms from any of my subjects…
Fantastic photos, Aaron!
The photo of the girl on the steps is absolutely stunning–the contrast of the grey, horizontal steps with the vertical, fuchsia dress is perfect.
Thanks, Ed! Though I do have to admit that Anner took that photo and I did some cropping to make her more dramatic. Anner insisted I include it…and I’m glad she did!
These are really neat! Love the dress and the closeup of the old man. Lovely!
Muchas gracias, senor! Glad you like ’em.
