Awsome work, Agustín!

Very much enjoyed the photos and makes me feel what i'm doing in the home now...

Arose me technical question too - you have very large 23" prints available - did you use large or medium format photography then? Or just 35mm equipment with technical (ISO25-64) film to get large detailed prints?

Cheers, Margus

Great pictures need working on, and you have really worked on 'em...
A splendid portfolio from a seriously challenging and emotive environment, enhanced by great composition and dramatic lighting.
Thanks for re-igniting the joys of black and white too!
Regards Kitmax

Thanks Margus.

I shoot with 35mm under 100asa. That range of Black and white film is forgiving when you blow it up to a max of 16X20 on traditional silver gelatin printing. The very large prints are Gicleé digital prints on fiber paper. I can get them at fine rsolution to that size by drum-scanning the negs.

Hello Nitsuga,

Very impressive work indeed. The picture called "Thaffassasset, the great empty" reminds me of a great stretch of the hamada in Libya I once crossed on the way to Derj. You can see it on a google sat map here:

and my picture of the place is here:
