It's not often that I upload a colour photograph, over the years I've developed an eye for black and white photography, rarely do I see subjects in color, I see them in tones and contrast. I've recently become more open to colours as I've begun playing around with 35mm film. I took this photo at 5:45am in Torres Del Paine National Park in Patagonia, Chile. I had spent the night sleeping in a closet, on a cardboard box (trying to sleep), after getting stranded in the park after missing my bus back to town, with no way of getting to my hostel. The nearest town was roughy 3 hours away, making it nearly impossible to find any bus/anybody going to town at 11:00pm so I was left with no option but to spend the night there. I was totally unprepared to do so, with nothing but my day pack and the clothes on my back. It was one of the coldest nights of my life, trying to sleep with the strong winds, cold, on an empty stomach was nearly impossible. All worked out in the end after walking an hour and a half to the nearest bus stop, making it safely to my hostel at around 6pm the next day. At 5:30am the sun began to rise, and I was able to capture this photograph as I walked back to my bus. While admiring the sunrise I could only think about how beautiful it was, and how getting stranded in the park was completely worth it just to see a sunrise like this. An image that will forever be engraved in my memory.

In 2008 I began my photo series Vida De Perros (A Dog’s Life) photographing stray dogs through the streets of Valparaiso, Chile. Today, 8 years into this ongoing project I begin working on the next chapter, an idea of mine that’s been years in the making. My goal as a photographer has always been to give back to my subjects, to the people, to the streets. This is the beginning of this ongoing chapter, in which I’m wheat pasting some of this series on to the streets of Valparaiso, right where it began. #valparaiso #chile #blackandwhite #documentary #photojournalism #animals #MyFujifilm #valpo #everydaychile #blancoynegro

Vida de Perros - In 2008 I began photographing stray dogs throughout the streets of Chile. The stay dog for me and many Chileans has become a symbol of this country, as an animal lover I've always felt a connection with the many dogs I encounter while traveling through the streets. 9 year into this series I'm excited to be able to continue working on photographing these dogs, shining a light on the stray dogs of Chile. Currently working ideas on how to close this story in an appropriate way.
