The Dynamic Earth: SOUTH AMERICA

The landscape of the “end of the earth” spread all over the South America is “Another World” different from the world we live in.
The more I see the ever-changing expression of the earth on the vast South American continent, the more I feel that the earth itself lives like a big life form.
Seeing the various expressions of South America gives us a new perspective that makes us feel “us” as part of the earth.
In order to capture a dynamism of the earth, the landscape photography is my life work.

The land of Clouds and Winds “Patagonia”

“Patagonia” which was feared as “the region of the giants” during the Age of Discovery is the name of region spreading in Argentina and Chile. In the land where overwhelming scales of nature spread, such as needle-peaks, freezing ice fields, and the Pampa spreading to the horizon, we can feel the drama of life in and around the magnificent natural rhythm.

The blessings of Andean Mountains “Los Andes”

The Andean mountains across the continent of South America is a primitive existence that governs all the nature of the continent. “The Altiplano” with an altitude of 4000m, the snow capped mountains, the tropical rain forest, even coastal deserts, all the nature in South America come from the Andean mountains.

Biography

I have been fascinated by images of South America since I was a child. When I was 19 and 20, I visited South America. And, I started working as the coordinator of adventure travel around the world. After starting Andina Travel, I have been taking pictures while guiding adventure tours and photographic tours focusing on South America.
