SORAYA MATOS | travel, lifestyle, culture photographer based in San Francisco, Cali.
More than a traveler of the globe, I am an explorer of ideas, using my camera to find the unexplored and seldom mentioned while making us wonder about our society in an ever-expanding, interconnected world.
Graduated with a degree in Visual Sociology from Wheaton College; currently quad-lingual; unbearable fear of bellybuttons; will do anything for white nectarines; has bees as pets.
Things that inspire me: the warmth of the sun // spontaneous in-between moments // the smell of brewing dark roast coffee // everything by Pablo Neruda // abandoned and forgotten places // innovators and shakers // the magical unparalleled force of the ocean // the drive to experience as much as I can to keep moving forward
I can't seem to ever sit still, here are some upcoming travel plans:
Maine + New York : July 2017
London: August 23 - 30, 2017
Tanzania: August 30 - Sept. 30, 2017
Bali: October 30 - November 15, 2017
