A selection of the best photographs by the participants to the Bolivian workshop «In the Footsteps of Che Guevara» earlier this year that I taught with my colleague Sven Creuztmann is now edited together in a book available on Blurb. The 16 Danish photographers who travelled around in Eastern Bolivia during the workshop all had different approaches, different themes for their shooting and different photographic styles. But what they all had in common was dedication and eagerness to capture various aspects of the lives in Bolivia. The result as it is manifested in this book is magnificent.
The pictures all have strong personal expressions, are rich in tones and stories and stand out each and every one of them. Some of the stories told by the photographs are linier and some are more tangible and conceptual, and as a whole they give a deep and multifaceted face of a country with a rich human culture and nature, but also with utterly poverty and harsh living conditions.
The whole book is possible to preview on Blurb by following the link beneath, and of course it’s possible to by the book as well, either as hardcover or softcover. If you are fascinated by photography – and in particular documentary photography – this is a book you should look up if only the preview. It’s simply a collection of stunning photographs.
