About «Latin America »
A hymn to beauty, Latin America celebrates the profound and incredibly diverse South American continent and its neighboring islands in all their color and gaiety. This title presents in a large format the richest images from photographer Olivier Föllmi's travels through many countries, including Mexico, Colombia, Guatemala, Brazil, Equador, the Amazon, Peru, Bolivia, and Chile. The book begins with a reference text by Uruguayan author Juan Carlos Mondragón and ends with a more intimate text by the photographer himself. Virginie de Borchgrave, a specialist in Latin American culture, has written the extremely detailed captions that illuminate each photograph. The first book to exhibit South American culture in all its glory, Latin America is a living fresco, a tribute to a continent that has inspired the imagination for generations.
