The following series are solarized images, which is a technique developed by Armand #Sabattier in 1860, who altered the normal densities of a photographic image giving a touch of light during the development, also called #solarization. It was primitively used for black and white plates, nowadays, in the case of the color, this effect produces unreal colors and images. I am including the original image as well.
It was a Saturday, I was flying to #Barcelona, and from the altitude I could only see #clouds, and the weather report said: #Rain…
I was going to meet with my friend Felipe, who I had not seen for many years since he left #Bolivia. I had called him to organize a trip where I could take photographs of #Water. Although I was discouraged by the bad weather, we took a rented car towards the north of Barcelona, we stopped at a small town #Cardedeu, the rain continued so looked for a place to have dinner; it was difficult to find a place that can satisfy, at the same time, a vegetarian and a carnivore like me.
Sunday came along; the #clouds had made us the honor to disappear, so we had good #sunlight. We rushed up the mountain to the park and by 8AM we started taking photographs; half an hour later most of the hikers that climbed the #Montseny arrived. They watched with curiosity these two photographers with heavy equipment that were taking photographs of tree branches. The rain of the previous night had #frozen and made spectacular forms, this image is one of the many #film rolls I took.
A few years later I made an exhibit at the #Agbar museum in Barcelona, presenting the book Del Agua with poems of Chilean poet Gonzalo Rojas and my photographs. The entire #gallery had my photographs and his poems. 0712-17/1 0712-17
