Description:
Taken on B&W film and scanned, worked on the digital darkroom.
Images printed on Ilford Fibre silver halide photographic B&W paper using a Lambda machine and shipped from NY.
Images printed on Photo Rag Baryta paper using a Canon 12 inks printer machine and shipped from Chile.

Story:
This image is particular to me. Five years earlier I came to the same place, I was preparing image for the book “Del Agua” with Chilean poet Gonzalo Rojas. The deluxe version of it was the presidential gift to visiting presidents to the Cumbre Iberoamericana.
12 rolls of film came out blank, the camera had a fault and never opened the shutter, which I did not know until film came out of the lab, fortunately I made back images with a small digital camera.
In this opportunity I went to the same place where the “Renegado” river commits suicide with a beautiful waterfall joining the “Dinguillin” river. I am not sure if the lab or the film were faulty, but all came out with a very intense blue. This image was converted to B&W which is the only one that I was able to retake.

Artist Profile

Born: 1955

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.
