“I thought I would go to Mexico. Why, I did not know. It was useless to think about that. I do not know Spanish at all. But, it will be O.K. Onaka Koji
Onaka darts with the bus and train or on the horse's back through the country, making a few pictures of lazy cows, empty village streets in the midday sun or a large blue locomotive, which pulls a few wagons through a small village and is delighted , that there is not much to do. Hannes Wanderer, 25books
“Tacos, tacos, everyday,
I feel nostalgic for those days.
Lots of film in my backpack.
I did not have any plans.
I was able to go anywhere.
I could shoot something or nothing at all,
and it was okay.”
Horse & Cactus is about Mexico but even more about traveling as a form of art.
