Over the past three years, I have taken over 15,000 high-resolution images of Playa del Carmen on the shores of the Caribbean. I usually start at dawn, then capture the sunrise.
Throughout the day, I keep an eye out for birds, palm trees swaying in the wind, fishing, and dive boats coming and going, as well as anything special that piques my interest.
Approximately 140 of those photos were selected for display in "Under the Caribbean Sun."
When I stand behind my lens, I always seek the beauty of the moment, but more importantly, I try to capture the essence of day-to-day life in a tropical setting. I moved to Mexico for some sunshine and a few margaritas, but I discovered a whole new way of life.
Now, I live in a room without an address. When I need something delivered, even internationally, I must provide a description of my street and where I live. However, there are no numbers on the steel gate leading to my personal Shangri-la.
In my previous life, I owned two vehicles. But in approximately 1,200 days down south in Mexico I have been inside a car three times. Two of those times involved a medical emergency, and the third time it was something about a girl.
Mexico has a colorful past and present. People survive by accepting realities and never talking about specifics. As a big fan of breathing, "Under the Caribbean Sun" embraces this traditional way of life.
