I made this slideshow with over a hundred images that I have taken over the span of three years. They were taken for a personal documentary project that from day one I knew I wanted to do. Vivir & Vender is an insight of the lives of a community of sellers from Otavalo, Ecuador that are installed in the northern region of Spain also known as the Basque Country. I met the Kichwas (they're called that because they speak a derivation of Quechua known better as kichwa) in 2006 but I had the possibility of photographing them in 2010 when I followed them for the better months of the summer going from festival to festival near this region. And so, after three summers of living and selling and travelling with them I feel confident about my work and the evolution of my photography. Thanks for watching.
