Travels through the Bolivian Altiplano
I have loved the Bolivian Altiplano (Highlands) ever since I first travelled there almost twenty years ago. There is something about the harsh clarity of the landscape and people that has captivated me ever since.
Most of these images are from a recent field trip in 2009, when I visited a religious festival in Sucre, travelled through the Salar de Uyuni and walked the Yungas Cruz into the steppes of the Andes. All of these photos were taken on slide film, in my opinion the best medium to catch the intense colors of the high Andes.
I have recently finished a travel book called The Devil and the Mountain, a journey through the Bolivian Highlands, currently with Literary Agent Jenny Brown Assoiciates.
