Juxtapositions of Old and New in Tumbaco, Ecuador with @ivankphoto

To see more of Ivan Kashinsky’s photos from “Project Mi Barrio” follow @ivankphoto or browse the #projectmibarrio hashtag.

In the small town of Tumbaco not far from Ecuador’s bustling capital city of Quito, the traditional ways of life are changing quickly. A superhighway is under construction. A new shopping mall sells name brand clothes. Corn fields are valuable real estate for apartment buildings. The folkways passed on for generations exist simultaneously with the latest digital devices.

In his series “Project Mi Barrio” on Instagram, photojournalist Ivan Kashinsky (@ivankphoto) shares these fascinating juxtapositions taking place every day. “The Ecuador that I’ve been documenting for the last 10 years, is going through a titanic shift,” says Ivan. “Old indigenous ladies walk their cows though the streets as people wait impatiently in their brand new sparkling clean SUVs. I am watching the old Ecuador slam into the new Ecuador right in front of my eyes. It’s a double-score when the two come together face to face.”

Project Mi Barrio is also about exploring the consequences of this global shift towards modernization. “Will people be happier as we slip into the future?” he asks. “What is being lost? These are the questions I want people to be thinking about when they see my images.”

ECUADOR!

Tepotzotlan, Estado de Mexico

Transportation & Time: This nearby area can be reached for short day trip by taking a bus at Cuatro Caminos (Blue Line-Line 2) and paying sixteen pesos for a short forty-five minute bus ride. 

The city itself has numerous attractions that bring nearby locals and visitors to its small center for a peaceful time away from the busy city life. If you should find yourself with a day to spare, then its definitely recommended to visit this friendly little town for some delicious food. With various stands lining the streets and restaurants offering free samples and promotional prices to attract customers. 

Museo del Virreinato & Church of San Francisco: This museum is home to a breathtaking church, courtyard and one of the largest collection of religious items as well as more common items from our early colonial period. A must see for a short trip to the area with plenty to view and learn as you wander the three floors of the museum or wonderfully maintained courtyard within the church walls.

Seeking Inspiration Midair with @manonwethly

To see more of Manon’s artfully captured images of #flyingstuff, follow @manonwethly.

For Dutch designer Manon Wethlij (@manonwethly), the contents of her arresting #flyingstuff photos are less important than the conversations they provoke. “People are free to see or feel whatever they want in the shapes,” Manon says. “I love that they make people talk to me and ask questions.”

“I studied architecture for two years, then graphic design, but the thing that has always made me happy is photography.” When she found Instagram, Manon says, “it was exactly what I needed to keep my photography enthusiasm alive. I was taking lots of photos every day and just storing them in my computer for no one to see.”

These days, it’s the response to her photos on Instagram that keeps Manon evolving creatively. “Everybody’s enthusiasm encourages me to try new things,” she explains, “It’s sort of addictive.”

Soñando.

"Sueño con volar, sueño con bailar, sueño con arte, sueño con circo, sueño con el escenario, sueño con tus ojos, sueño con el mar, sueño con tu vida, sueño con la mía, sueño soñando, sigo soñando y sueño al despertar.

Te sueño soñando y vivo del sueño, soy un sueño vivo, soy un sueño por realizar, sueño con el instante, sueño con perfecto, sueño con luz, sueño energía, te sueño aurora linda, te sueño agua salvaje, te sueño libertad gigante, te sueño alma constante, te sueño a momentos, te sueño porque si, sueño porque lo se hacer, sueño porque es lo único que se hacer.

Vivo del sueño, vivo soñando, vida de sueño, sueño mi vida.

Sueño eres, sueño soy, soy soñando”
