Manuel on diversity in photography:
“It’s important to show the diversity that exists in our environment, and the changes that have happened in the most archetypal social roles. Even in small cities, you can find cultural, racial, and social diversity that previously was exclusive to big cities just a few decades ago.
“I like people. No matter the color of their skin, gender, age, or social position. Simply look for the beauty of each person you capture, in the most natural way possible. The daily, simple moments.
“I have been working in stock photography for just over a year, and what I like the most is that any subject has a place here.”
