This past weekend on Sunday, July 23rd, veteran street photographer Ronald Daza, also known as @Nevasatisfied, attended the annual Colombian Independence Parade of New York City held in Jackson Heights, Queens. Daza, the talented and respected photographer has shot for clothing labels 10.Deep and SSUR, and has also been featured on the up and coming Street Dreams Magazine.
The long time Queens resident of Colombian descent bared the humid temps and rainy weather to capture the joyous occasion. One of Queens' most colorful and well attended parades, it featured salsa & cumbia dancing, scenes of Colombian orgullo, and dozens of street vendors selling everything red, yellow & blue as Colombians celebrated their Independence from Spain. It was projected that over 75,000 folks came out to the parade that runs on Northern Boulevard from 74th Street to 86th Street.
