Colombia: Julián Fandino, Inclement
Photographic series shot in Puerto de Cotos, in Guadarrama Sierra, Spain. Made during the winter of 2019. A place which might look like a Nordic or artic location, but it is not, amazingly is Spain, a not very famous country for cold weather and rough weather conditions such as the ones shown in this sequence of images In this series, it is shown that inclement weather is a given for any traveler undertaking the journey up a mountain - one that must be respected and never underestimated. At the same time, I intend to represent the beauty of what is often considered bad weather - the tense calm that one experiences in the middle of a blizzard, where the only thing that surrounds you is the fog and the mountain itself, and the enemy-companion relationship that you forge with nature along the journey.
