14th Annual Smithsonian Magazine Photo Contest Travel
Clash of Cultures

La Puerta de Alcala is a tourist attraction in mid Madrid that draws crowds from all over the world. From wedding shoots, to countless selfies. I decided to capture the clash of the cultures by doing a long exposure representing a motionless historical monument, and the fast paced lives of these days.
