Helllloooo. After a year or so of back and forth on ideas and photos and layouts and all that stuff, I’ve finally finished my first photography book. Containing photographs from 3 series I’ve been working on for the past couple years.  

I’ve always believed in the phrase “If opportunity doesn’t knock, build a door”. When I first became serious about photography I didn’t know where I wanted my work to go. I didn’t see it going in any of the magazines and publications I normally read. I’ve always had a passion for print. I knew I wanted to give something physical, something for people to have, to show, to share, to hold, to keep or even to throw away. This is first of many books I would like to share with you all. Thanks in advance if you decide to purchase it and thanks if you don’t but still fucks with me. 

Love over everything, 

Donnle Garcia

One of my BIGGEST dislikes. Before I continue writing I would like to say I have nothing against this photographer. I just feel the answer that he gave to this question is ridiculous. I don’t want to make this long so I’ll put this in simple point form. 

- Unless you own that abandoned place or location then there shouldn’t be any reason as to why you can’t give out where it is 
- You’re not the only person whose found that place. Trust. So what’s the point in worrying about if people will break shit. Other people will go there and may or may not break something. There is nothing you can do. 
- The place is abandoned, more than likely most of the place is already broken 

Most importantly… 

As an avid explorer of abandoned places it just doesn’t make sense that you wouldn’t help another person find these places and share the same feeling of excitement that exploration brings. This kind of outlook is a negative way in connecting and contributing with all people.

As an artist I believe sharing your work really means SHARING your work. Like I said in a previous post.. 

There’s a difference between cooking to eat and cooking to feed. Both keep you fed but only one gets you full, of yourself.
