So as a videographer/photographer who has had the opportunity to travel there are a lot of things that I have enjoyed experiencing. Seeing things that I’ve never seen before, meeting new people experiencing different cultures. It really has affected my life and viewpoint on the world. But I have to say one of my favorite things about getting to travel for work is seeing things that I saw and read about in history books in person.
A couple of weeks ago I had the opportunity to travel to Mexico City and visit the Teotihuacan Pyramids. I remember vividly learning about these pyramids and the Indian people who inhabited them in my primary school days. I saw pictures of the Pyramid of the Sun and Moon, and the Avenue of the Dead that connects the two. These images from my textbook have stayed with me for whatever reason. So when I got to go and photograph them myself, stand where those photographs were taken I really felt honored. Honored and thankful that I have been blessed enough to be able to see history for myself, and document it in my own way.
