Michelle Cornejo - Huarmi Maqui 6 - Peguche, EcuadorAll images copyright © Michelle Cornejo 2011 taken during the years 2003-2008. Michelle’s first film camera was given to her at the age of 6 and ever since then, she has been documenting almost everything she encounters. Her work consists mainly of travel and documentary photography but also includes nature, portraits and conceptual work. Being raised between the states and Ecuador injected her with the travel bug from an early age, and this has led her to explore places such as Spain, France, Italy, Germany, Switzerland, Holland, England, Peru, Colombia, Jamaica, Mexico, Panama, Canada, Malaysia, Thailand, Cambodia, and Vietnam. She is currently based in Durham, North Carolina. Visit Michelle Cornejo Photography
