Andes
Film photography in north-west Argentina
In 2004 I found myself in Argentina with time to kill, so I bought a bus ticket to a region that I’d always wanted to visit – the province of Salta in the northwest. It was my first trip to the Andes, and has been followed by several more since then.

The Andes really are an amazing part of the world. They stretch the length of the South American continent, although the part I know best straddles northern Argentina, Bolivia and southern Peru. This is a region where you can find wonders such as the world’s highest city and deserts above the clouds; and the local people hold traditional fiestas and celebrations whose origins stretch back to the years before the Spanish conquest.

On that first trip to the Andes I had just one film camera, a Pentax Z-50P, and two lenses – 24mm and 50mm primes. These are my favourite images that I created on that trip.

These photos have also appeared in Andes – my latest ebook at Craft & Vision. You can read more about it at my website here.
