The images contained within these galleries were captured over the course of seven weeks in the Chilean cities of Santiago, Valparaíso, Puerto Montt, Cochamó, and spaces in between, as part of the cultural documentary project, Revelar los Enlaces, produced by Brooks Institute in 2009. They chronicle a small sampling of the street life, political practices, and social systems of Chile. 

Watch the Documentary:

Puerto Montt, Llanquihue Province

Threatened by mining and deforestation, a pristine valley is now largely in the hands of a young forester and an ambitious lawyer who are fighting against time to save what could be Chile's next and best national park.


Puerto Varas, Llanquihue Province

Life in the mountains of Chile moves at a slower pace. An unfamiliar pace by much of today's standards. The remoteness of this small family home located on Volcan Calbucco means a dependence on one's self and one's neighbors. This gallery summarizes one summer afternoon when beef was on the menu. This gallery contains graphic images.
