Category: Travel Portraits


Photo and caption by Björn Jonas Larsson

Part of a portrait-series of old men captured on the small island of Holbox in the Mexican Gulf. Even though the Hotel-industry is big on the island a lot of the nature is still untouched. Cars are forbidden on the island and the nature is very important for the people living on the island. This old fisherman where standing on an street corner one afternoon and the way the light reflected in his face and eyes just made him glow of life and energy.

Location: Holbox, Mecico
