Astoria, NY Member since February 2016
My name is Monica Zorrilla. I was born in Lima, Peru, and about 15 years ago I decided to move to the United States to expand my horizons. So I moved to New York City, and I couldn't have chosen a better place to do this.
I instantly fell in love with the city; the captivating people, the enchanting architecture, and the spectacular landscapes hiding just beyond the city's borders. I had always enjoyed taking pictures, and had dabbled a bit in the past, but my passion grew immensely when I moved to NYC. I started working in I.T., and through my new friends and colleagues, began learning more about cameras and photography.
I'm at my happiest when I am taking or working on my pictures. Expressing myself through photography makes me feel free and alive. My camera is my friend and accomplice, and together we try to capture the beauty in every moment.
For me, the greatest thing is letting the picture tell its own story.
