The Small Moments of Life

Klaus Holsting pictures capture the small moments of life. He waits for all the compositional elements and the flow of action however subtle it might be, to line up in the tradition of Cartier-Bresson’s decisive moment. Still his expression is all his own. During the Bolivian workshop in April earlier this year, he worked exclusively in colour, went about in his unobtrusive way and mingled with the locals whether in a bar, on a market or at the homes of the people living in the villages we visited during the workshop. And waited for those small moments to occur. His pictures speaks with a gentle voice, are often moody and dark, and come across with a profound insight to the lives he captures.

If you want to see more of Klaus’s pictures from Bolivia, you can look up the book Bolivia 2013 which showcases the work of all the participants. All the images are available on preview, but it’s also possible to buy the book.

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.

I do like how these photo are dark and moody, one might even say gritty. They portray another aspect of your workshop.

I admire your work capturing these moments full of mood and stories about people in Bolivia.

The dark contrasts beautifully with the vibrantly colored light along with the strong lines of the structured compositions in each shot. Everyday life with dramatic impact.

We actually planning two workshops. One Oct.7th-14th in Cuba, and one Oct. 21th-28th in Bolivia! I would be great fun if one of them makes you want to go.
