Shanti Akkineni

In the Spring of 2009, unemployed and unhappy, I packed up my camera and got on a plane to Buenos Aires. I told myself I was never coming back to Corporate America.  

A year later, sitting in the lobby on my first day back to work at an investment bank, I cried copious tears. These are my photos.
