Patricio Oses and Volcán Paniri Tours
Living in the north of Chile since always, from a young age, I was able to appreciate the unique beauty that the Atacama Desert offers and to break the classic stereotype that in the desert there is nothing, only earth and sun, wind and dust, but the reality is completely different. Those of us who live in this arid world far away and forgotten by centralism, we are able to live and enjoy the wonders that this inhospitable environment offers, knowing that we have one of the most wonderful places internationally known throughout the world as San Pedro de Atacama, where unparalleled landscapes and the mystique of the place offers unique views that captivate and leave breathless the most emotional people, colors and contrasts are manifested in a matter of minutes in a colorful sunset, in rainy times wonderful rainbows are manifested and impressive thunderstorms illuminate even the darkest night, captivating many and terrorizing others. It is one of the most photogenic places in the world and amateur and professional photographers know it.
From a young age I felt the need to transmit the wonders that I saw every day to the whole world to teach them the wonders that this arid and inhospitable desert offers, so the classic stereotype would be eliminated and everyone would see the wonders of this beautiful place. So with photography and video I manage to capture unique moments and transmit them in some way to the world.
