Bolivia

Challenging the ethical dilemmas of tourist photography (particularly in Latin America). The googly eyes were not photoshopped in. They were taped onto the subjects before taking the photo.

There's this argument in photography that taking people's photos fetishizes them and promotes materialism, so by having their eyes closed but still creating the illusion that they are acknowledging you by taping googly eyes to them, I challenged whether we are still fetishizing them or tricking the audience into fetishizing an illusion.
