About the Book
ADDITIONAL BOOK PHOTOS & INFORMATION: http://futureboyproductions.com/designbogota.html | There is a reason for this book. Bogotá deserves to have its story told. Bogotá isn’t Rome or London. Bogotá isn’t Tokyo or New York. Bogotá is Bogotá. A city filled with energy, people, joy, music, food, and yes, sometimes a little danger. It is all these things, and no fewer, that makes Bogotá a truly special place in the world. A place that offers the increasingly rare gift of adventure, leaving its visitors with a feeling that they have finally been somewhere real. Unfortunately, Bogota is tragically overlooked outside of South America. And yet it is a city with architecture that rivals Europe, food that rivals Paris, music that rivals New Orleans, and an energy all its own. It’s a city that is absolutely filled with color, whether it’s on the buildings, doorways, clothing, or people. Color is just everywhere. But these traits alone do not set this city apart. What makes Bogota so unique, is that it is proud to be unique. The people of Bogota are not trying to be anyone else. They are not ashamed or intimidated by other cultures. They will proudly show you their best traits, laugh at their crazy ones, and never hide their worst. Like the greatest cities in the world, the people of Bogotá know who they are and they own it. Bogotá is Bogotá. This book is an attempt to capture a little bit of Bogota’s beauty. There are very few words and very few visual tricks. This is not a tourist book or a guide book. It’s an art book. It is my hope that these images will inspire others to see this city for themselves, to find their own beauty in its streets, and, most importantly, find their own adventure in Bogotá.
