 My friend Isabelle was recently in town visiting from Denver. We decided to visit the Musée du Quai Branly which houses collections of indigenous art and cultural artifacts from Africa, Asia, Oceana, and the Americas.

While waiting for Isabelle to arrive, I revisited the outdoor photo exhibit sponsored by the museum which features photographs of people from all over the world. I happened to pass by as the director of the exhibit was filming an introduction to the concept.
"Twins" by Rongguo GAO of China
"At a tent near you" by Amit Madeshiya

I was particularly touched by The Car Poolers, a series of photographs by Alejando Cartagena capturing tired Mexican workers returning home from their jobs in the city.
