Odoko Dano

"She was at once gracious and proud, loquacious and cagey. She saw immediately beyond the contours, the confines of the conversation. She could not be captured or contained. She refused to discuss what did not interest her, just as she refused to waste words on the dispensable and predictable elements of a plot. There are only certain moments in life that matter, she told me. Those were the moments in which meaning lay."

"The cruel joke of life is the feeling of limitations and reality of endless possibilities constantly tugging at each other. We all wake up everyday believing that all we can do is go to our job, school, or similar duties, spend our days in our self-prescribed bubbles, then go back to sleep, defeated by our boundaries. Then, out of the blue we are inspired by a quote, a song, a speech, a book to peek outside our box, to imagine what life would, or could be, like if we only took one step out of our own way."

While working on an assignment to capture how people made use of the streets in Monterrey, Mexico, photographer Alejandro Cartagena discovered an unusual perspective on commuting.

We love this photo essay.
