Following on from my previous blog about my trip back to Bosnia and Ahimici I have just received the 14 rolls of processed film back from AG Photographic ( a fantastic lab service to whom I’m most grateful) which I shot on the trip. The last week has been somewhat nerve racking and full of […]

Originally from Venezuela and now living and working in the UK Cipriano is an amazing talent with an intellect the size of the Amazon and just as complex. He is a my friend […]
