Today is the day. Late this afternoon, the Instituto Geografico Militar (IGM) and I are holding an event to launch the publication of Ecuador Por Mis Ojos. This book of photography takes the reader from the highest point in Ecuador, Chimborazo, to the Amazon Basin in the east and to the wide beaches of the west coast. The final pages end at sea level and highlight the beauty of the Galapagos Islands.
Ecuador Por Mis Ojos is not available for sale but will be gifted to many of the people who have made our time here in Ecuador an absolute joy. But its publication has spurred me to search for publication options in the United States and to make my photography available in a different format other than online.
And there is a bright side – IGM is planning on sharing an online version of Ecuador Por Mis Ojos sometime soon!
If you are interested in seeing an exposition of 12 of the photos, in large format, and you live in Quito, the IGM will have the photos on display in the Sala de Exposición in the Planetarium. The exposition begins tomorrow, Friday, August 5th and runs for two weeks.
The Sala de Exposition also offers an excellent view of Quito and Rucu Pichincha. It is a great place to go to capture photos of this beautiful city.
