Yann Gross – Rio Napo

July 20, 2013

Swiss photographer Yann Gross recently produced a series called Amazon Meanders which features photographs he took while traveling on a medical river boat. The boat made its way up the river Napo, a tributary of the Amazon which goes through the Peruvian Amazon, upstream to Ecuador. It’s an isolated region and the boat provides medical services as well as government contacts.

I like Gross’s photos because they are well-observed, quirky and idiosyncratic, showing life as it is in the Amazon without resorting to the usual cliches used when depicting the region. See more photos from the series on Gross’s website and also a slightly different edit on Institute Artist.

I’ve started posting the occasional photo to thomaslockehobbs.tumblr.com

I still plan on posting here too, although I realize I’ve been delinquent with that during the last year.
