I was invited to do a presentation at Rome. Arrived on the weekend to do my photography outing.
I had been searching on the Internet for water locations near Rome. Discovered the Marmore waterfall, which is one of the highest man-made waterfalls in Italy. It is the outflow of a Hydro Electric power plant, so it operates on certain hours of the day. Can be seen only at this time and for a couple of hours, so had to plan my time.
As I did not know the environment on the trails view that I would encounter, I left it to my intuition. After paying the fee to enter the park, I rushed to see the surrounding and found a good vantage point. I had time to take a few images of icicles that hang from some rocks.
When the siren rang, I knew that soon I would see the waterfall, it started as a small stream of water and later it became the splendid majestic roaring waterfall.
I had to make sure that I took photographs from all angles before it stopped . Had two hours to take pictures from the top and rush down the trail to the bottom. This time the water mist of Marmore damaged temporally my camera, but was able to take this image before it stopped working.
Hometown: La Paz
Based in: Calera de Tango - Chile
Photographer dedicated to portraye 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 perfection and the impressionism colors such as Vincent Van Gogh work has forged my technique to pursue the chase of Water and capture its beauty. While visiting more than 40 countries and living in 10 of them, have now 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. Other images are non-repeatable due to nature effects.
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 investigating, learning, and using new digital tools.
