Daily Life in Bolivia

During the Bolivian photo workshop in April the daily life of people living in the villages visited while on the road following in the tracks of Che Guevara was intimately captured. Helene Bagger was one who particularly focused on children’s living conditions. She approached her subject with compassion and thoughtfulness. For more of her pictures have a look at site of Blue Hour Photo Workshops.

  1. Gorgeous! I am going to Bolivia for the first time this fall ad doing a trek in the Andes. I have never been there but have been to Peru and loved it. I can’t wait to go and capture it all! 🙂

  2. This really is a wonderful photo, Otto. Bolivia must be an incredibly colorful and photographic place. I love the way you tell stories in your photos, and Helene’s work is very thought provoking, also. 🙂

    1. You mean for the workshop? For a number of reason. First of all it’s a fascinating country. It has lots of photo opportunities. It’s colourful. People are friendly. And then we can make an interesting theme for the workshop by follow in the footsteps of Che Guevara.

  3. An amazing photographer who captures the hearts and dreams of its subjects. Children are so transparent. When they are sad or happy, all you have to do is look into their eyes. It is a humbling experience to be around people society often forgets . It opens our eyes to what is real and what we can do about it.
