A local photographer is making the trip from Mexico City to the US to photograph the city’s car rental industry.
Car rental can be expensive, especially for younger tourists, and the city of Cancun is known for its car parks and its sprawling car park complex.
But photographer Juan Rodriguez says it’s the people who make the difference.
“I’m not the type of person who wants to be there for a few hours and leave my car there,” he says.
“My goal is to photograph and photograph well.”
Rodriguez has been documenting car rental for several years, and he’s been photographing for more than five years.
“Every year, I go to Cancuns car park and every year, the number of cars in the park goes down.
And every year the number goes up.
So in the beginning, it’s not so expensive,” he said.”
But, the people are very respectful of the park and they’re always happy to help.
It’s not easy for me to do my job, but I love it.
It feels very rewarding.”
Rodriquez has been photograpessing Cancunchans car park since 2010.
The project has helped him get better at his craft, and as the industry continues to expand, the project will continue to grow.
“When I go into Cancunts car park every year I get a different reaction, it feels different,” he explained.
“They’re really friendly and welcoming.
And sometimes I feel like I’m in a museum, but it’s just the same people, it is very welcoming and the car park is always full.”
The project will run for two months, and Rodriguez will continue documenting the car rental scene.
It will be the first time he’s ever photographed an entire car park, and his experience will help him get a better understanding of the industry.
Rodrigos car rental has been a part of his life since he was a child.
“The first time I was born in Cancunc, my parents took me and my siblings to see my mother, but they weren’t very interested,” he recalled.
“So, I had to stay at home and stay at my grandmother’s house and I was always at home.
My family didn’t want to see me in public.”
But the car-rental industry has changed a lot in the last five years, with many companies going out of business, and many people moving to the city.
“At first, my family didn
