Making immediate eye contact and harnessing the natural light as my accomplice, I instantly start bonding and everything follows: a connection is fostered with my subject making me part of their world. In this way, I delve into work without expectations, without knowing what I will capture, welcoming the unexpected. I find the momentum within my heart, it tells me which direction to take. #uruguay #campo #artistresidency #heidilender #thelandwetreadupon #ar

Bridge

Edit this
It was a harsh winter a few of years ago. I was living at my studio in Brooklyn, next to the Manhattan bridge, feeling lonely with not much to do. I saw through the window, the blissard was hitting. I pick my camera an shoot non stop during 2 months, best winter ever.Looking back I find limitations have never been a problem but rather have allowed me to explore beyond. And it never matters which camera or lens I use, invariably what makes the difference is my attitude.”

Alejandro Pedrero doing what he loves most, roping.Alejandro was on a horse even before he learned to walk, he has made observation and patience fundamental tools of his trade. A tru symbiosis, subtle yet intimate between horseman and horse is formed generating a bond and unbreakable connection. #charreria #charro #mexico #lagosdemoreno #newbook #cowboysoftheamericas #greystonebooks #wadedavis #thelandwetreadupon #centaur

Buendia Uruguay! Photography is an attitude; it is searching inside and out. At first you have to be experimental, mess around, destroy and build, touch and feel… and then be open, like a kid allowing for inspiration to take over. #roadtrip #uruguay #thelandwetreadupon #gauchos #newbook #cowboysoftheamericas

Kid

@luisfabini takeover!#cloudforest school, supporting education in ecuador’s remote areas. I was riding through the rural villages on my way to the highlands and I visited one of the local schools. These kids have very basic needs, so we can achieve a lot with very little. We took doctors to the schools and discovered that 80% of the children are not reaching their physical potencial because of iron deficiency. By delivering lentils and helping plant more green vegetables, we have already seen and improvement in their physical and mental development. I am helping setting up a foundation to support the children in this area and preserve the enviroment in which they live.

@luisfabini takover! This year I photographed the potato harvest in the Ecuadorean Andes at 12,000 feet, where I lived with indigenous families for a month. More than 4000 varieties of native potatoes grow in the Andes. #harvest #burndiary #hands #Andes #ecuador #thelandwetreadupon

The Red Bench

Edit this
The Red Bench is a sacred space for inspiration and new beginnings, where we can share joys and sorrows and move forward. The Red Bench is a space to open up, to reach out to the other, and in doing so to dig and explore into yourself. #heidilender #uruguay #pueblogarzon #love #campo “We are defined as individuals by our attitude to the Other” #Emmanuellevinas

I wake up before dawn, light the fireplace, she wakes up a little later, drinks her chai while I drink my coffee or mate. We read, edite photos, in deep silence . Then we jump into the mat; she is an amazing ashtanga yoga master,I am so lucky. We dive into a prolific photographic collaboration a couple of month ago. She likes to plan things through and I am intuitive , we add to each others work and lives.This is how I see her, she is a builder in every way, relationships, things; she likes to jump like a playful horse. She is very generous, loyal, creative and knows how to get things done. She is creating an amazing project, #Campo an #artistresidency project at #pueblogarzon in #uruguay..
