Varela Mountain, Chile, 2013

Dibond Mounted / Lustre Paper / Laminated / Unframed


“Curving paths of snow-capped ridges lead the eye up the undulating shape of the distant Mount Varela. Only the sturdy, ever-yellow ichu grass can thrive in these extreme conditions, at over 4,000 metres high, and patches of ichu grass punctuate the wind-swept plane. Situated on the route from Socaire to Agua Calientes in north-eastern Chile, the mountain is named after an old family, long established as llama shepherds in the area.”
