In 2001 I went for a journey that would change my life and my photography, at least for the following years. From Panama to the US border with only a Leica and a backpack, that was the idea: going back to the roots of travel and photography. Kind of a fresh start in my life and profession. And such it was.
In the following years I went back to travel reportage, with less digital manipulation that had influenced me in the end of the nineties.
Now, after over a decade, I feel it's time for another such a change and so here is the photographic tale of that trip: a reminder of what it takes to cut with the past and move ahead, on a long road ahead.
The photos are in two parts, both for free download.
