"Beach Vendors” is an ongoing project about independent workers who make a living selling merchandise on beaches around the world, and, at this stage, particularly in Latin America, combining photography and written interviews. In this body of work, I look into the culture and socio-economic lives of the very edge of our continents, and seek to visually unwrap the reality of those who have the beach not as a space of leisure, but as a workplace.
