Luis Lazo – ‘El Tatio: El Hombre Que Llora’

Luis Lazo’s series ‘El Tatio: El Hombre Que Llora’ – a journey through the landscape of geyser field in northern Chile – inhospitable yet impressive, dramatic and spiritual.

Forced to leave the country as a seven-year-old child, the artist returned to this eerie area of beautiful bubble pockets of water and spectacular steaming gases in the Andes Mountains, to discovery how time and space reshaped perceptions and personal memories.

“My work interweaves, landscapes and portraits to reveal stories of shared experiences in a reflective and hopefully moving manner, capturing the relationship of the human subject in time, history and emotion. My main consideration is to engage and record the silent and fleeting nature of these little moments. To express their importance to me and capture their distinctive spontaneity.”
