La Puna de Atacama – 2017 / 2018
These, Altiplanic landscapes are topographical storyboards exploring a personal narrative of identity that pendulates between Australia and Argentina.
Eternal and elusive, silent yet present, a shadow less landscape that offers extensive spaces, provides an opportunity to disconnect from the tangible and obvious visual elements one would associate with traditional landscape photography.
The Atacama plateau (La Puna) extends through the Andes of north west Argentina, northern Chile and southern Bolivia.
Silvi will be giving an artist talk at the Festival Hub (Paddington Town Hall) on 10 May at 11am.
