  • ao

    i am utterly and deeply in love with your project.

  • I’m glad everyone is enjoying it! I’ve received many emails from people who have been encouraged just reading through the submissions for a few minutes – hearing that encourages me as it was definitely the whole point of the project! There is still more to come, more than what has already been posted!

  • I second Jeff’s comment. We are so so excited to bring the second part of the project to life, and thank you for loving positivity as much as we do! :)

Photographer Spotlight: Angeles Peña

“Aguas de Montaña” is a journey into The Andean Patagonia, a desolate territory where photographer Angeles Peña lived all of her childhood.

She says, “In a world that spins faster and faster I feel an enormous necessity to focus on the details and the beauty of what still remains. I find myself with a nature that sustains itself but can fall at any moment. It is something that surpasses me and I cannot stop observing.”
