In the artist's own words: “I took this photo in my frst month of a three month study abroad program in Ecuador. The Basilica is a signifcant landmark in Quito and refects the history of religion and colonization within Ecuador. This photo captures the beauty of the city, and it is very close to my heart. It evokes the profound love I have for Ecuador, because I was truly moved by this place. When I look at this photo I realize how I was changed forever for the better by Ecuador, its culture, and people.”
