Artist Statement

IconCaretDown

The factory in Germany was repairing my Rollei camera, so Jaime a good photographer friend kindly lent me his 6x7 Mamiya.
I decided to go camping with my children to Las Siete Tazas, where the river sculpted the mountain’s rock into 7 small cascades, forming “7 cups”, which gives the name in Spanish. Light was very strong with no clouds giving a Soft Light, so most pictures came out with a blue tint. Of the outing, I like best this image of running water over rocks. I took some time to get accustomed to see horizontal or vertical of the Mamiya compared to the Square Format of my Rollei.

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 in the city of La Paz at the high Andes. Since then, they have learned by capturing sparkles from the masters.

The influence of Ansel Adams and Vincent Van Gogh works 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 mainly using film in a medium format camera, as well as digital, capturing the beauty of water in all its forms; denouncing many times the little interest that our civilized world invests in its purification, conservation and preservation. Printed mainly on large size fine art photographic paper, for Color as well as Black & White, also, for certain images use ink based printing.

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 were taken in glaciers that have disappeared during the last 20 years.

Started oil painting and developing 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.
