My friends tricked me into jumping off a bridge yesterday.

We went up to Whistler for a little belated birthday celebration, and they didn’t tell me what we were doing until we got to the bridge. I guess that’s what friends are for!

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.”
