Award Winner - Dear Chile
Award Winner United Kingdom GO ON UK Digital Skills Awards 2014.
'Dear Chile' is a photographic journey through towns and regions of Chile, capturing the beauty and diversity of my country from the mystical Atacama desert to the magnificent Patagonia region in Tierra del Fuego (Earth of fire).
The photographs mirror the footsteps of my past as I travelled once again through the cities and towns my family lived in during my childhood and teenage years.
The shape of Chile is quite unique. In its widest part in the Strait of Magellan, Chile is only 445 km wide but over 8.000 km long with most of its 17million inhabitants residing in the fertile valleys of the central zone.
Chile is a country of vast contrast and no other country in the world combines so many diverse landscapes and climate zones.
The selection of photographs in this book also have added significance as my son was accompanying me on his first visit to Chile. An 8000 km trip by foot, road, air and sea.
A journey of discovery, which was to take us right back to our family roots.
