Story:
During our winter vacations, I would have a day for my photography, as agreed with my wife. I left mid-morning to a valley not far from the road at La Parva. It took me a long time to get to the small waterfall with ice just 30 meters away as had deep snow.
Although I took good boots, the snow made its way into the boots. After standing two hours, my feet got frozen and had to end the photography outing.
This is a color image converted to Black & White, where the shapes produced by the snow and light have a better expression.

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.
