Mom on the beach of Barcelona

October and November came and went with many amazing experiences. At the end of October, two of my friends from Occidental flew into Madrid to visit Habiba and I. Alex is studying in Greece, while Isabel studies in Toulouse, France, so Habiba and I were beyond happy to have them with us-- studying abroad is full of changes and uncomfort, but having some familiar faces around felt really stabilizing. The last eight photos of this album are from that weekend in Madrid.

I was also forunate enough to have my parents visit me here in Madrid a couple of weeks ago, and then travel to Barcelona with them for a weekend. It was a weekend of many firsts: my first time in Barcelona, first time seeing the Mediterranean Sea, and felt like the first time I really got to photograph my parents-- something with a lot of importance to me that I can't fully explain.


Octubre y noviembre vinieron y fueron con muchas experiencias increíblres. A finales de octubre, dos de mis amigas de Occidental volaron a Madrid para visitar a Habiba y yo. Alex está estudiando en Grecia, mientras Isabel estudia en Toulouse, Francia, así que Habiba y yo estabamos más que contentos de tenerlas con nosotros-- estudiar en el extranjero está lleno de cambias y de incomodidad, pero tener unas caras familiares se sintió realmente estabilizarse. Las últimas ocho fotos de este álbum son de este fin de semana en Madrid.

También, yo fui suficientemente afortunado como para que mis padres me visitaron aquí en Madrid hace un par de semanas, y luego viajar a Barcelona con ellos por un fin de semana. Fue un fin de semana de muchos primeros: mi primera vez en Barcelona, primera vez viendo el mar Mediterráneo, y sintió como la primera vez que realmente yo podía fotografiar a mis padres-- algo con mucha importancia a mi y que yo no puedo explicar completamente.

<p>My name is Ian Matthew Zunt, and I am from Seattle, Washington. I am currently studying Urban and Environmental Policy at Occidental College in Los Angeles, with minors in Art History and the Spanish language, and I am planning to join IES Abroad's Language and Area Studies program in Madrid this Fall semester. Coming from an arts high school in Seattle, I have realized a deep interest in all forms of art, from dancing and singing to acting and the visual arts. Through the solid presence of art in my life, I found a passion for photography, specifically with analog cameras and color film. Though I have somewhat moved away from art academically, I continue to create and to take photos for myself, taking part in local gallery shows and online sharing.</p>
