Ama la Vida Type Specimen

Marissa Balbuena | Junior

Exploration of my Ecuadorian heritage by combining important aspects of Ecuadorian culture: the architecture, traditional folk art, and native flora.The slogan for Ecuador "Ama la vida" translates to "Love Life". I strive to be specific to Ecuadorian civilization and raise awareness of the diversity the Hispanic community holds. Additional visual imagery I photographed from when I visited the country. "Esta es Nuestra Tierra" brings to light the oil and socio-economic crisis occurring in the Amazon.
