Having a Margarita in Florida

2017 - 2023

I was in a van with a dozen or so people on a photographic assignment when the conversation turned to travel. Someone asked if anyone had been to Mexico City. An eager voice replied “I’ve never been to Mexico City, but I’ve had a Margarita at Epcot and it was incredible.”

That van ride left me pondering how a city of 22 million people can be compared to a margarita at a theme park. I couldn’t stop thinking about it. I knew I had to have a Margarita in Florida.

I spent the next six years photographing places that replicate other places across the United States and China.
