Cali Roots 2015. A Poem

Some say it takes a village; I agree. Everyone in a community has a role and when we practice that role to the best of our abilities great things happen. Fortunately my role at Cali Roots 2015 was to document the overall experience and preserve it through the photos I took. I’m a firm believer in the power of photography to tell stories and how those stories can induce a feeling within ourselves. After going over thousands of images I compiled my top 20 shots to share with you and wrote a poem inspired by all the images. I hope you enjoy. – Josué

This is a movement,
Joy and passion,
