Anita Corpas was another photographer working in black and white during the Bolivian photo workshop in April. Her pictures of rural farmers portrait their simple life in beautiful and strong compositions, in captured moments that shows not only the hardship of farm life in Eastern Bolivia but also the farmers’ zest for life; and radiates hope and strength. Although the way of farming seems antiquated compared to modern agriculture, the low ecological impact, the close relationship to nature and even a grounded peace of mind that seems too often gone in the modern world, makes the rural farmers emerge as both content and confident in their lives.

If you want to see more pictures of Anita and the other participants taken during the workshop, the book with all the participants’ pictures, Bolivia 2013, is available on Blurb. You can buy the book or you can just browse through the preview.

Du you want to do a photo workshop in Bolivia. Then next «On the Tracks of Che Guevara» will take place this autumn, from October 7th to 14th. MORE INFO.
