Viviendo como los Madrileños / Living like the Madrileños

Madrid is a massive city with 3.2 million people living in the metropolitan area alone. As with any city of this size, the populous is incredibly diverse and therefore very interesting for street photography. A recent week spent in the city gave me the chance to document the inhabitants of this great city, known as Madrileños. 

The city is cut into several different districts, each with their own unique culture and people. From Malasaña to Lavapies, and Salamanca to Retiro, Madrileños pack the city’s wide Boulevards and endless narrow side streets as they move about their daily business. 

Here are a few of the images I grabbed while in the city last month.
