"One late summer in 2006, I landed in a hostel in Granada, Spain to study
Spanish for a month. As I walked through the historic Andalusian streets
that held a thousand stories, I was in awe by the magical city and the
mixture of rich cultures. But it was the friendships with other young
backpackers and international students that kept me there for a year. In
this transient city they gave me sense a belonging that I never had and
since then, I have been obsessed with capturing this experience, the spirit
of fraternity and the fleetness of youth."
