This was my first project. It was developed as the final work for the Photonarrative and New Media Diploma 2014 at Fundación Pedro Meyer (México). The final result was a photobook from which I share here an extract.

The project was born as a passenger's photo album, showing the North Terminal of the North-Central Corridor, the most neglected transport system of Quito by that date. The photos were taken during two months of 2014.
