Even though I grew up in the same state where Canaima National Park is located, during all my years living in Venezuela I never had the chance or took the opportunity to visit it.
It is funny and sad at the same time, that only after leaving Venezuela and living away for 15 years I have decided to visit it anytime I get the chance.
Photography changes perspectives in so many things, you start to see different, and appreciate beauty at a higher level. Nature's beauty always amazes me, to the point that my photography in general is dedicated to it.
In this book, I present a collection of images from my two trips during 2010 to Canaima National Park, in my beautiful and wonderful Venezuela.
This is hopefully just the beginning!
I was born and raised in Venezuela, and I currently live in the San Francisco bay area. I have always been passionate about technology, music, art and my family. For me, photography comprises a little bit of everything I like: technology, art, love for nature and beauty. Even though I believed I am a late bloomer photographer, this is a passion that came and will stay with me for the rest of my life. In my photographs I try to depict nature beyond the obvious, charged with emotions, and the feeling of Zen and tranquillity of being in the outdoors. I dedicate time, and effort to capture the images, and each image is crafted to portrait the moment and place at its best. I hope you find a little bit of me in each photo, or at least that I pass along the beauty that surrounds us that sometimes is taken for granted, and in our rush through life we just pass by without really enjoying it.
