About this book

Language: Bilingual in English and Spanish

From serene iguanas to ghostly cacti, the splendor of the Galapagos Islands is reflected in the photographs of this body of work. Rich compositions and a calculated palette of black, white and shades of grey emphasize the contrasts and harsh realities of the environment, and create a theatrical stage for the surreal and dramatic story of life on the islands.

Fernando Espinosa Chauvin is an artist/photographer who constantly challenges both the composition and technical aspects of his craft. The Galapagos project is a prime example of this as Espinosa chose to shoot the project entirely in black and white and used infrared for a majority of the pictures to capture a more intense differentiation of light and dark, thus increasing the intensity and drama of the photographs.
