Photographer Erik Herrera (@duvalinpapi) spends a sunlit moment in a taco shop close to home in #ElCajon, #California. “Aspirations for my art are to show anyone that life is truly connected to all,“ the artist writes.

I share myself in every photo, but I still have the habit of hiding my true feelings…they’re in there somewhere.” // #sandiego #contemporaryphotography #artpho...

It is widely con...
