The Art of Traveling | Enrique Aviles


In this B&H Event Space video, traveler and photographer Enrique Aviles discusses his journey from beginning simply as a traveler, to his decision to pick up a camera and share with others the knowledge he gathers from life on the road. During his presentation, Aviles shares many practical tips, including the importance of making a list of where you are going and what you want to document, the benefits of waking up early, the discipline behind hunting for a picture, and how to challenge yourself physically, creatively, and socially in making different types of pictures. He sees documenting one’s travels as an opportunity to tell a personal tale, and a chance to write your own history. Most important, however, he stresses enjoying the process, being grateful for the ability to learn from a wide range of cultures and experiences, and using these experiences to enrich the lives of others.
