MAY'S #aCreativeDC THEME has been TRANSPORTATION, and we've rounded up some really incredible imagery (by Y-O-U) to go out with next week's Newsletter. Above, a skate + bike-filled set from DC-based photographer Cristian Zuniga. "I was born In Chile and lived there until I was 25. It was there I got my Bachelors in Art Direction and Photography. After that I start working for different companies, none close to the creative world, but I was able to travel. It was on one of those trips that I decided to move to the United States looking for a new adventure, 2 1/2 years ago. I was living in New York for a few months and I was working as a bike messenger so I started to take pictures at every race that I was able to assist. I moved to D.C. and it’s here that now I’m able to work as a photographer for local shops, shooting products, food, look books, etc." Follow Cristian on Instagram: @cristianzunigaphoto
