Medellin '09 / by adriana monsalve

I found a bunch of old negatives from 2009.  I had scanned them and everything.. I just completely forgot about them.  They are all from Medellin i think, maybe some are from surrounding towns.  My dad is from Medellin, every time I go back, I see more and more of this city and imagine his life in these streets before immigrating to the US at 17yrs of age. so yeah... here is Medellin, Colombia - 7yrs ago. Shot on a Hasselblad, a Holga, and a little spy camera.. that i don't know the name of - 110 film.
