Tierra del Fuego, the Land of Fire

Tierra del Fuego - Land of Fire

Chile | Sunday, November 2, 2014 | 5 photos

My name is Gus and I am a passionate explorer, tailor and photographer. As someone who has always loved to observe nature, discovering photography gave me the tools to focus on details and context that can sometimes be missed by observation alone. After borrowing a friends camera I was bitten by the bug and have gone on to take photographs and make short films across remote, rural and outback Australia, California, Southeast Asia and Patagonia. In the future I look forward to exploring and documenting more of the worlds unique cultures, landscapes and wildlife.

In my late teens my mother fell very ill so I looked after her for four years, at which point she was lucky enough to make a full recovery. This difficult period gave me a renewed perspective on life; I decided from that point to focus on what made me and the people around me happy. I now make bespoke clothing from recycled and recovered materials whilst working, travelling and exploring, always looking for new opportunities, adventures and knowledge. I would love the opportunity to learn about and share with others the cultural and ecological issues and raw natural beauty of the Peruvian Amazon.

About askdsn

Tierra del Fuego consists primarily of an expansive archipelago, separated by spectacular fjords, with a larger landmass on its Eastern side.  On the North-Eastern side the landscape is primarily grassland steppe and cold climate desert.  As we moved across towards the North-Eastern side of the island we came across a lone Guanaco (Lama guanicoe) as the sun began to set while rain fell in the distance.  The Guanaco is a camelid and is the wild form of the more commonly known domesticated Llama.  It is still widespread across wild areas of Southern South America.
