La Vega, the Capital's oldest farmer´s market

3

Many are afraid to go to this place with their cameras because it´s not one of the best neighborhoods in Santiago, however, in this area you can walk and take pictures in a perfectly quiet way to experience one of the most popular places in the capital of Chile.

La Vega is a farmer´s market that is located in the district of Recoleta, Santiago, what you can find here is a big variety of food and restaurants like fish, meat, octopus and Peruvian stuff.

There are different reasons for visiting this place, either for the explosion of many colors that blend into the variety of scents, looking for cheaper products or my reason, to know one of the city’s oldest meeting points and see how the people interact in the narrow corridors.

I recommend you to bring a film with 4ooISO minimum because it´s a little dark inside.

And don´t be afraid to go and explore every corner of this remarkable place!!

    Film Manipulation: Mixing Bleach, Detergent and Negatives

    I've been experimenting with many substances, more or less corrosives, for film manipulation. The images come out so different, that sometimes you can't even recognize them. The pictures in this experiment are a result of mixing bleach and detergent powder.

    Changing Seasons: Durham in Autumn

    Durham is a beautiful but tiny university city in the north of England famous for its amazing cathedral, which is one of Britain's best loved buildings. When I was studying at the university, I loved to go for crisp, autumnal walks around the cathedral and the river, kicking the leaves and basking in the golden glow of the season. The Lomography Redscale film perfectly captures the beauty of this time of year.

    Finally, My Own Petzval Lens

    In April of this year I had the chance to test the Petzval Lens and to write a review on it for the German photography forum Kwerfeldein. The lens excited me from the very beginning, at the time it was introduced on Kickstarter. I was afraid that once I had tested the lens, I would want to have one of my own! Well, that’s what happened; a year later, I finally bought my very own Petzval lens.

    Two Days and One Night in Vibrant Sapa

    For three months last year, I traveled to 11 cities of eight Southeast Asian countries. My first destination from my hometown of Seoul was Vietnam. After 10 days in Hanoi, I joined a group tour to Sapa, an area known for its hill tribes. This is a photo story of my two days and one night in this remote but vibrant place.
