Chicama, known to many as the longest wave on the planet, is located about 600km north of Lima, in the fishing town of Malabrigo.
In January 2017, two of my best friends and I decided to drive 10 hours from Lima to arrive in this mythical place. Even if we couldn't find the perfect conditions for the wave, it was a trip full of discoveries about our country and ourselves. We could evidence the economic inequality between regions and the different way of living of other coastal cities that we usually ignore. By driving across Peru, landscapes become infinite and you feel lucky enough to be part of this marvelous planet.
The Stonewall Riots of June 28th, 1969, in New York, gave way to the beginning of the gay right movement. A year after, the first gay pride marches took place in New York, Los Angeles, San Francisco and Chicago commemorating the anniversary of the riots. Many years have passed since that moment and we still live in a world where priests step on gay flags or we hear about shootings on homosexual clubs. This year, I decided that I wanted to see what's all this 'thing' that they hate so much. To photograph is an easy task, but to see is the difficult part of it and that's something every of us should work on. This is a small photo selection of the Gay Parade that took place in Paris the 24th June 2017.
Like Leroy "Lonnie" Jordan, vocalist of WAR, said:
'Take a little trip, take a little trip
Take a little trip and see'
On the 1st of May thousands of trade union activists marched through Paris and other cities of France to demand next president to protect workers' rights. On that day I decided to go with my Nikon F3 to Place de La Republique where unions were gathering. Before arriving at Bastille, I decided to come back after hearing recommendations of some people that were saying that police would start to use gas bombs against protesters. During the shoot, one of my two films got broken when I was trying to change it and at the end, I just could save this one.
