Most of the time when I’m posting pictures of my beautiful island it is of the white beaches, clear blue sea and perfectly colored buildings. But there is so much more to Curaçao than most people normally see. They don’t see the huge difference between wealth and poverty. They don’t see the broken roads and houses of which you can’t even imagine that they have actual residents. For most civilians it is normal to see those things and walk past it. But I know tourists would be rather scared to cross certain places here. Yet I see so much beauty in what some would call the ugliest buildings. They may be ugly, but they’re ugly for a reason. Often, the lack of reason makes it even more interesting for me.
So I went out to one of the most known places of Curaçao, Otrobanda. Otrobanda translates to “other side”, which I find suitable to this post..showing the other side. I tried to photograph Otrobanda in its complete pure- and rawness. I am not a professional, I’m far from it, in all honesty. But I just wanted to get my point across, that even in the most unappealing part of a city, there is still beauty to be found when you look close enough.
