Johannes Huwe: Inside the Patagonian Region

The tail of South America is a vast land of mystery and varying topography that would make any traveler ever curious. Back from his Antarctic expedition, photographer Johannes Huwe traversed through Patagonia.

Patagonia remains a sparsely populated region, located at the southern end of South American continent and is shared by Argentina and Chile. It's a region which compromises the nether regions of the Andes Mountains Range, varied by deserts, grasslands, plains, and valleys.

For those unfamiliar, Patagonia got its name from expeditionist Ferdinand Magellan in 1520, who described the native people of Tehuelches 'patagon', meaning they were taller than Europeans of the time.

Huwe decided to capture the unique place with an old Leica M3 from the 1960's, accompanied by more than 30 rolls of Kodak Tri-X. The images are reminiscent of early 20th-century pictorialist landscapes; a careful surveillance of the almost empty location that seems to be inside its own time capsule.
