Description:
Images printed on Fine Art canvas or Hahnemühle Photo Rag® Metallic paper using a Canon 12 inks printer machine are shipped from Chile. On special order, these images can be printed on Hahnemühle Canvas Metallic which takes a longer delivery time.
Story:
These images are at the Jungfraujoch glacier, one is from the tower overlooking the valley and the perfect composition of the crevasse (glacier fissure) and the other is from the ice tunnel carved in the glacier.
Both images were digitally solarized using the The Sabattier effect is a technique developed by Armand Sabattier in 1860. He altered the normal densities of a photographic image giving a touch of light during the development, also called solarization. It was primitively used for black and white plates, nowadays, in the case of the color it produces unreal colors and images.

Artist Profile

Born: 1955

Hometown: La Paz

Based in: Calera de Tango

Photographer dedicated to portraying Water.

It was late 1955 when my eyes peeped at the city of La Paz near the high Andes. Since then, they have learned by capturing sparkles of light.

The influence of Ansel Adams and Vincent Van Gogh work has forged my technique to pursue the chase of Water and capture its beauty, while visiting more than 40 countries. Living in 10 of them and settled at the small town of Calera de Tango in Chile.

My work is done using film in a medium format, as well as digital cameras. Capturing the beauty of water in all its forms; denouncing many times the little interest that our civilized world invests in its conservation and preservation. Printing mainly on large size fine art photographic paper, for Color as well as Black & White; lately using ink based printing and fine art digital paper.

Water, an important resource, source of life, and protagonist of my exhibitions around the world, that converge between the look of the paused movement, preserving it for future generations, as is the case of certain images that I took at a glacier that has disappeared during the last 20 years.

Started oil painting and playing in darkroom at the age of 10, later taking pictures of what my eyes noticed. Took as much photography courses as I could, forging my technique and creating the water portfolio. Still continue learning and using new digital tools.
