The Bolivian Experience

Although I have just returned from one workshop in Malawi, there are still a lot of great photos from the previous workshop I taught in Bolivia. Here is an amazing picture by one of the participants, Mikael Hjuler.

For more; look up Blue Hour Photo Workshops.

    Great capture. I like the the way the photographer has captured the ‘bump’ in the opposite cheek of the two men. Wonder what made the ‘bump’ :0)

  3. Kaugummi …? – Großartige Aufnahme … 😉

  4. I really enjoy looking at this photo and searching for clues to the story of the men and their interesting “bump.” I’m so glad you included the link to Blue Hour Photo Workshops. I love this photo and was glad to find the answer! Your workshops sound so interesting, Otto. I am absolutely certain the participants are very happy with their experience.

    Great picture. This picture by someone else has feeling of your photography style as far as the composition is concerned. Thanks for sharing, Otto.

  6. These images pull you into possible narratives.

    Great photo caught at just the right time.

    What’s wrong with their cheeks ? Just curious.

  9. Great shot! It invokes a lot of amusement. They both have that expression of just having been caught with their hand in the cookie jar.

  10. A wonderful play of contrasts.

  11. Well seen and well done! I guess, I’m sure it was an interesting experience for you all.

  12. Beautiful browns which are unusual for me to see.

    love the color tones and coca-leaves, huh? reminds me of chewing tobacco folks…thanks for sharing ♥

    This gives me the giggles for some reason, Otto. Maybe it’s because the Bolivian has obviously showed this “recruit” how to do “it” and neither is sure about being photographed – albeit for different reasons. It does look like two naughty boy! 🙂

  15. A really intense image. It must be usual to chew a rather large amount of leaves at one time, then.

  16. Thanks for sharing Otto and I hope you have a wonderful week. I am off to explore more of Mikael’s work.

  17. You capture humanity and its unguarded expressions with so much truth, purity and reality.

  18. Did you try coca leaves? I wonder what it tastes like.
