Couple of weeks ago, during Mexico’s Day of the Dead weekend I was visiting my two photographer friends – Masha Osipova and Mauricio Palos – in Merida, Yucatán. We decided to play a 24-hour game. The objective was to: 1. Conceive of an idea for a photo-shoot using historically or culturally significant location We scouted Merida’s incredible abandoned haciendas left over […]

Like a migratory bird, I recently flew south to Mexico for winter. But before I switch to posting images of sunny skies, turquoise waves and pre-columbian cities, I want to share these last few night-time photos of New York. To everyone I dearly miss in my favorite concrete jungle – I say goodnight and sweet […]
I continue my urban image series with these soaring landscapes of New York. Encompassing day and night, earth and sky, light and water, this is my humble homage to the city that knows the secret to remaining beautiful and energetic despite continuous lack of sleep.
Life has been particularly stimulating this summer in New York. After a rather lengthy break from posting new images, I finally return with a new line-up of photo-stories about this dynamic city. The first series is about gritty September skies observed during my recent stay in one of Brooklyn’s most colorful neighborhoods – Bedford-Stuyvesant. Taking […]
If like me anyone out there is experiencing serious withdrawal pains from the recently completed 2012 Summer Olympics in London, I invite you to consider this story as a kind of an anglophile placebo. Its subject is gritty and unusual, related to England by way of forever-cool and classic English bikes. What I’m talking about […]
Amsterdam is one of my favorite cities in the world. Having explored this northern European urban jewel several times in the past, it was only recently during a very brief summer trip that I felt like I finally saw its true colors. Maybe because this time I was visiting a dear friend and got to […]
Without a doubt, one of the best things about New York City is its Central Park. Designed by landscape designer and writer Frederick Law Olmsted and the English architect Calvert Vaux in 1858, it is the most visited urban park in the United States and an official National Historic Landmark since 1963. The park stretches […]
To visit any space designed by the famed architect Santiago Calatrava for me is always a spiritual experience. His train station in Belgium’s third largest city of Liége was no different. Expansive, soaring and brilliantly light, the building sent shivers down my spine as I literally had to contain myself from dissolving into the structure […]
Last week I complained profusely on Facebook about being robbed during my recent trip to Mexico’s southernmost state of Chiapas. Upon arrival to Palenque, my very first stop, I discovered I was targeted in transit and consequently left without any money and without my most valuable possession – my camera! Two weeks later I still […]
In September, the ancient and beautiful city of Venice, Italy, inspired me to begin including cityscapes to my blog’s current photography repertoire. It often seems like another life, but before relocating to a small town of Tulum on the Caribbean coast of Mexico, I had always been an urban dweller. As such, the experience of […]
I felt like putting together some images depicting Mexico’s typical gastronomic staples. Personally, I can’t live without mango.
Mérida is the capital and largest city of the Mexican state of Yucatán and the Yucatan Peninsula. Founded in 1542, it is a cultural and financial center of the region, as well as a time capsule containing rich history of both the indigenous Maya and Spanish colonial times. During late 19th and early 20th centuries, […]
