Alter Ego is a short story about a serial killer on the loose, looking for his next victim.
This short story is the result of a workshop during the 2015 Miami Street Photography Festival. Throughout the workshop, our assignment was to go out every night and build a story with the photographs we captured. The theme was “Mystery Miami”.
I used to be shy and sheepish when taking street photos. I would feel like a “predator” taking pictures of people that were unaware or may not want to be photographed.
This fear gave me the idea of creating an alter ego. I “became” a serial killer, wandering the streets of Miami, looking for my next prey. My weapon was my camera.
